Popular snowdrop sale returns to award-winning gardens in Enfield

The eagerly anticipated Ultimate Snowdrop Sale is coming back to Myddelton House Gardens in Enfield on Saturday, January 25.

The annual event attracts green-fingered gardening enthusiasts and collectors from far and wide, in anticipation of seeing and purchasing a range of beautiful and rare varieties of Galanthus bulb.

The Ultimate Snowdrop Sale has historically seen some of the rarest snowdrop species swap hands for nearly £1,000, but with prices for other varieties starting at £5, there will be something to suit every budget.

As well as browsing and purchasing a variety of snowdrops, visitors will be able to explore the Green Flag award-winning gardens.

Head Gardener Richard Harmes said: ‘‘Our gardeners and volunteers are working hard to ensure this event is as successful as ever and I’m looking forward to welcoming visitors from across the country and from further afield. The gardens are home to thousands of bulbs and hundreds of snowdrops – it really is a wonderful sight. I hope our guests enjoy the event and develop a greater appreciation and understanding of this flower, and why it inspires such devotion from collectors.’’

Myddelton House Gardens, Enfield, Saturday, January 25, 7.30am to 12pm. Details: 0300 003 0610 visitleevalley.org.uk
