Snowdrop Month at Burtown House & Gardens

Saturday, 2nd February 2019 10:00 am

Aconites and Snowdrops

published by James Fennell in Flowers, Events, Exhibitions, Food, Gardens

The gardens at Burtown come to life in early February with large swathes of naturalised snowdrops sweeping down the front avenue underneath the old horse chestnut and beech trees, in the old island woodland garden, and naturally throughout the flower gardens. There is also a more recent planting of a specialised snowdrop bed. In addition there are many collections of hellebores, early spring bulbs and perhaps one of the largest carpets of aconites which form a canopy under the old horse chestnut trees at the front of the house and are slowly naturalising down the front avenue. This is perhaps one of the largest gatherings of aconites in Ireland and the UK.

The gardens are open from Saturday 2nd February every Wednesday - Sunday from 10am - 5.30pm.

Eat .... The very best seasonal organic produce at The Green Barn

The Green Barn will be open as per normal from Saturday February 2nd for brunch at 10am, lunch form 12.30 and dinner on Saturday nights. Serving water seasonal organic produce straight from the garden, its the perfect place to stop for a warming lunch amidst the colourful winter gardens of Burtown.
