KENT YOUNG CHEF / TASTE OF KENT AWARDS / CONFERENCE

Snowdrop Sensation, Sunday 18th February 2018

Join us for our 4th annual Snowdrop fair!

Galanthophiles’ or snowdrop collectors, are among the most competitive varieties of plant nuts – some will stop at nothing to get hold of a rare bulb; even stealing from other galanthophiles isn’t ruled out.

Snowdrops can be sold for record-breaking sums of money (a single bulb was sold online in 2015 for £1350) and growers keep their locations secret in order to avoid their nurseries being stripped of their prized bulbs.

The plant fair will run from 10am – 12 noon, and the garden will be open until 4pm.

Great Comp Garden is usually closed in February so the Snowdrop Fair is a rare opportunity to see our own fine displays of Snowflakes and Hellebores when they are at their peak.

Teas and lunches will be available in The Old Dairy Tearoom.

Usual admission fees apply: £8/£7 Adult/Concession, £3 Children (6-17). Free for Great Comp Garden annual pass holders.  20% day entry discount for RHS members (individual, member 1 for joint membership and both for life members).

 

 

GARDEN OPEN DAILY: 25th March – 31st October, 11am – 5pm
