Snowdrop Season

Closeup of spring snowdrops

Experience the sight of Snowdrops across the gardens at Ightham Mote throughout this February, as these magical winter flowers put on their display.

Over the past season our garden team have been busy planting bulbs, adding to the many existing clusters. Across the garden we estimate to now having over 5,000 snowdrops in the ground.

Snowdrops are one of the earliest flowering plants, making them a welcome sight in the gardens as they bring their delicate beauty to the grounds. They are also good news for wildlife, and particularly insects.

Come and enjoy the results of our planting as they flower across the gardens. The dates given are approximate, but if you visit in February this year you will be sure to seem them. If you take any good photos, do share them with us online when you get home!

Plan your visit to see their magic unfurling.
