NGS Online Talk: Celebrating Snowdrops

Date: Tuesday 18 January 2022

The National Gardens’ Scheme are holding an Online Talk entitled Celebrating Snowdrops at 7pm on Tuesday 18th January 2022. Speakers include Mike Werkmeister, Matthew Fleming, & Carolyn Millen.  The talk with Q&A will last approximately 60 – 90 minutes.  In the NGS’s new talk, three garden owners will describe the snowdrops in their gardens around the country.  Find out about how these collectors have built up a collection of snowdrop rarities and discover the subtle characteristics of different varieties that are so prized by galanthophiles.  Learn about how snowdrops were loved by great gardeners from the past, such as Margery Fish, and how great spreads of snowdrops become established and endure for decades. The speakers will be Carolyn Millen, who has built up a superb collection at Spring Platt in Kent, Mike Werkmeister, owner of East Lambrook Manor in Somerset (a garden created by Margery Fish), and Matthew Fleming (best known as an England cricketer) owner of Horstead House in Norfolk, where snowdrops carpet grassy banks and woodland.  For all the details and to book your place, please click here.
