The snowdrop week runs from the 13th to 21st February- and attracts visitors from all around the world. This year there’s the chance to join expert-led tours of the gardens with inveterate galanthophile Jackie Murray. Booked in the advance, the tours run on 13th, 16th and 18th Feb- in the mornings, before the gardens open to the public. These special tours cost £20 (£15 for RHS and Friends of EWG). Visitors will be able to study the different forms of snowdrops and learn how best to grow them. The tours include tea/coffee and homemade cake, a comprehensive guidebook of the gardens and a bunch of snowdrop bulbs to take home and plant in your own garden.
