Each February, hundreds of thousands of hardy snowdrops push through the cold winter ground to create a magnificent ‘white carpet’ across the woodland floor behind the much-loved Elizabethan stately home.
Simon Cunliffe-Lister says: “Our snowdrops are always a welcome sight; the biblical symbol of hope announces the new season and reminds us that winter eventually gives way to spring.”
The courtyard awaits visitors returning from a walk. The café offers delicious, locally roasted Fairtrade coffees and speciality teas, home-baked treats and warming meals created with local and home-grown produce. The Garden Shop and Gift Shop offer the new season’s stock for a perfect gift or treat, and visitors may also like to add to their own collection of snowdrops by choosing a Burton Agnes-propagated plant ready for spring blooming.
The Snowdrop Spectacular runs from the 8th February to the 3rd March 2019, from 11am to 4pm each day.
At the end of the snowdrop opening, Burton Agnes holds its annual Orchid Festival on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd March. There will be stunning exhibitions in the Hall, and flower sales. Expert advisors will give talks and take questions about how to care for orchids, and there will be slide shows and stalls selling orchid related goods.
