Drop in to catch the snowdrop dawn

Poor old January.

Falling as it does, in the wake of December’s sparkle, it can seem a grey and trudging month.

All the more reason, then, to celebrate the arrival of the snowdrops: raising their sweet, snow-white heads above ground while most flowers are still slumbering below soil, they’re heralds of joys to come.

Running from late January through to late February, the Cambridge University Botanic Garden Snowdrop Trail takes you on a tour of delicate drifts, containing some 30 different varieties, while learning about snowdrop science, history, folklore and how best to grow the beautiful bulbs at home. Lovely.

The Trail will open once the flowers are in bloom.
