Snowdrops and Aconites in February

published by James Fennell in Flowers

Opening February 13th - February 28th. Every day from 10.30am - 4.30pm. The gardens then open from April - October.

The Gallery Cafe will be serving delicious lunches every day that we are open, using fresh seasonal organic produce direct from our Kitchen Garden.

February is one of our favourite months here at Burtown. We have old and extensive well established displays of naturalised snowdrops in the garden and woodland, and all down the avenue, as well as about 60 varieties of more recently planted special snowdrops. Our aconites have, in 300 years spread into magnificent carpets of yellow, under trees and throughout the garden.

Hellebore, iris, daphne, and a lawn planted with early bulbs of spreading cyclamen, anemones, snowdrops, narcissus, tulips, crocus etc, make Burtown well worth a visit at this time of year.
