Early spring flowers

The first snowdrops are starting to unfurl in the Rock garden.

Two of the earliest species that we have are Galanthus ‘Anglesey Abbey’ and Galanthus ‘Opehlia’.

To enjoy a wider array of spring flowers head over to the Alpine House, situated in front of the Palm House. This is a veritable riot of colour, with dwarf Narcissus, Cyclamen, Crocus and the very unusual flowers of Gymnospermium albertii.

    Hello! I live in Canada in the West. – B.C. And near the ocean. Today I found snowdrops blooming in our Comunity Garden. I think Scotland has very similar weather right now. We have not had snow and many flowering plants are about to burst into full bloom. I am an avid gardener and see we are enjoying a mild winter. How about in your area of Scotland. Yes, it is cold and damp and we do not plant seriously until end of April.

      I did not see a reply to your request. I will be retiring to the West Coast of Scotland but not until next summer but in February 2023 I hope I will be able to let you know..
