Snowdrops and winter gardens in West Sussex

The first spots of colour start peeking through in our gardens and countryside in winter. There are snowdrops and winter colour to enjoy at Nymans, Petworth and lovely winter walks at Sheffield Park.

Snowdrops growing in the garden at Kingston Lacy, Dorset

Nymans, West Sussex 

During wintertime the garden at Nymans is at rest, but not asleep, with snowdrops, flame coloured cornus stems, scented daphne and colourful camellias flowering throughout the garden.

A frosty winter morning at Sheffield Park and Garden

Sheffield Park 

Winter brings misty mornings and frosty trees to give the garden at Sheffield Park a timeless, sculptural beauty. Bare trees expose their structural forms and frosty leaves crunch underfoot.

Petworth, West Sussex 

For the first glimpse of spring visit Petworth and see swathes of snowdrops that carpet the Pleasure Grounds - a welcome sign of warmer days to come.
