Snowdrop Days 2015See the snowdrops at the historic botanical gardens and enjoy a walk through nature at the charming Chelsea Physic Garden, usually closed during winter but open especially for the Snowdrop Days. This year there's an opportunity to see the snowdrops elevated to eye level so you can marvel at these wonderful harbingers of warmer weather. While the snowdrops take centre stage you can also see other late winter flowers like wild primulas, miniature iris and crocuses. The Snowdrop Days also include a series of free talks and workshops including a talk by Joe Sharman, the plantsman of Monksilver Nursery, on Saturday 31st January.

 

About Chelsea Physic Garden

The largest fruiting olive tree in Britain and the world's northern-most outdoor grapefruit tree call the historic Chelsea Physic Gardens home. Hidden behind towering brick walls, protected from the city's sounds and harsh breezes, the most idyllic collection of plants flourish in a unique, carefully created microclimate.
