Snowdrops at Sunnycroft
Across the gardens at Sunnycroft the Snowdrops are starting to emerge. Shake off the winter blues with a refreshing stroll around our garden before putting your feet up in front of the fire in the tea-room.
What might you discover?
Sunnycroft offers you the opportunity to discover the delights of a garden in winter. From Saturday 14th January we are open winter weekends. You will have the opportunity to explore the different varieties of snowdrops as they begin to emerge in our garden.
The garden is home to over fifteen different varieties of Snowdrops. When you visit you will be able to pick up a leaflet that will take you around the garden, allowing you to discover each variety and its history in turn. Every year our gardener plants a different variety to add to the collection.
" Each year a different variety of Snowdrop is planted at Sunnycroft. We aim to plant a Snowdrop that is either local to Shropshire or was available in the Edwardian period."
Friday 17th February 2017: Eddie Roberts, a local snowdrop collector, will provide an introduction to Snowdrops of Shropshire followed by a walk around the garden at Sunnycroft looking at the different varieties. Tickets are £10 and are bookable in advance.
Saturday 18th February 2017: Our gardeers will be providing guided walks around the garden, looking at the different varieties of snowdrops, their origins and their features. These will run throughout the day between 10.30am and 2pm. There is no need to book in advance but we ask for a donation of £2 for the tour.
