Throughout February the 30 acres of award-winning gardens are carpeted in a spectacular display of snowdrops, heralding the start of Spring. Weather pending, the camellias will be in full bloom on the Mount along with an abundance of hellebores and early Spring bulbs making an appearance.
Most of the snowdrops at Forde Abbey are the “common” snowdrop Galanthus nivalis, including the double form G. nivalis flore pleno, but galanthophiles will be able to spot other varieties in hidden corners, such as G. atkinsii in the Rock Garden.
Every Saturday and Sunday throughout February, the Gift Shop will be open from 10 am to 4pm and the Tearoom will be open from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
The reduced winter admission rate of £5 will apply throughout February.
Crocus also bloom along the top of the south lawn and in the Rock Garden particularly.
