Around 70,000 snowdrop bulbs have been planted in the Gardens over the past few years including a mix of single and double snowdrops, interspersed with some unusual varieties such as the yellow tipped Wendys Gold, a giant galanthus called Colossus which at 9 inches is one of the tallest snowdrops you can find and Galanthus Green Brush with its unusual green tipped flowers. Head gardener Neil Miller says: We have planted some exciting varieties in the last few years including Galanthus Athenae one of the earliest to flower, usually by the end of November, Galanthus Magnet, Galanthus Viridapice and Galanthus Picatus warham. The more energetic visitor can also take the peaceful one hour Hever Lake Walk which takes the visitor around the perimeter of the 38 acre lake. *We recommend that you wear suitable footwear such as Wellington boots or walking boots as the ground may be boggy in places.
Please note: Due to Hever Castle not releasing Snowdrop dates until Autumn, this date is to be confirmed.
