is here! We are finding lots of Snowdrops pushing through and growing
away it’s a time for looking and noticing the changes as we pass
through from an Old Year to a New One.
A mixture of mild days and then a drop of temperature that is our
weather pattern these days. We have to get used to surprises. Each day
outside our gates the clumps of G. Atkinsii become a little taller and
there is a little more whiteness we see ‘surprises’ all
around so Spring is inching ever closer. We wait for those tiny curled
up yellow Aconite flowers to unfurl them selves and shine through on a
bright winters day. It lifts the spirit to have these tough little
January Flowers just out in our gardens for us to watch out for.
After much consideration this year our Nursery Opening Times will stay
the same, however we are not planning to have a Snowdrop Open Day. This
will be the only change. It is a decision which has slowly crept upon
us, matters change and little problems become bigger. It is rather sad
after having done this for many years, but in the end we have to stop.
Even The RHS London Shows are over. However, there are always places to
see Snowdrops and talk Snowdrops so I’m sure we shall
adjust. On Nursery Open Times visitors will have access to Snowdrops
growing around the site. Our Shelter Belt Hedge has over many years
become a good home to many varieties and species. We have recently
established a Beech Hedge at the base of which will be underplanted
gradually over time. In addition we have a Pot and Picture Display
which is useful for eye level admiration of Snowdrops. As ever we shall
be happy to offer advise and share knowledge to people
Welford Park will open the gates to visitors during February. Such a
spectacle for people to visit, its an annual Pilgrimage to spend a few
hours walking through the woods beside the River Lambourn and to look
across all those white flowers. Visit the website for more details.
This year Sellers of Snowdrops and associated plants will attend
through out the month on differing days. This is instead of The Plant
Sale which has been held previously. We shall be taking part on a
couple of days and we shall be quite happy to bring any orders for
collection. Again check the Welford Park website for up to date information.
Thank you and happy gardening in 2019.
