Snowdrop Week: 15th - 23rd February 2020, open daily, 11am - 4pm
The Snowdrop; this beautiful, simple flower is the harbinger of Spring. Drifts of Snowdrops can be enjoyed at Easton Walled Gardens, Grantham, Lincolnshire and these delightful winter flowers release a powerful scent of honey on cold, sunny days. We love snowdrops so much that we dedicate a whole week to celebrate its beauty. We open our gates for Snowdrop Week on Saturday 15th of February and we think there's no better place in the East Midlands to enjoy swathes of snowdrops, rare and unusual snowdrops, aconites and hellebores as well as innovative spring planting schemes and hanging snowdrop displays all spread over 12 acres of 400-year-old restored gardens.
