Snowdrop Days Brought Forward Due To Mild Weather

Chelsea Physic Garden has had to bring its 2016 Snowdrop Days forward due to the unseasonably mild weather.

Some of the garden's snowdrops have been in bloom for a month or more already and most are now either in flower or about to break bud, forcing the venue to hold its earliest ever Snowdrop Days — 16-24 January.

During the Snowdrop Days, you can see displays of 70 different species of snowdrop, including unusual species which have been created by selective breeding. A total of more than 10,000 individual flowers will carpet the woodland — not bad for a botanical garden within walking distance of Victoria station.

Alongside the displays, snowdrop-centric events take place, including talks, tours, and photography and painting workshops.

Chelsea Physic Garden's Snowdrop Days take place 16-24 January. Tickets are £10.50 adults/ £6.95 for under 16s. Extra charge and booking required for special events.
