While the days are slowly but surely getting longer, nature is still very much asleep, except one little guy: the snowdrop.
Every year, the Chelsea Physic Garden, the oldest botanical garden in London, puts on an amazing display of rare snowdrops at the end of January. Visitors wanting to learn more about the many faces of the Galanthus can learn from experts, participate in workshops or just enjoy a walk around the garden.

Galanthus spp.

Visitors can go behind the scenes with Head of Plant Collections Nell Jones, learn from snowdrop specialist Joe Sharman or hellebore expert Ed Flint, or make a Kokedama filled with snowdrop bulbs.
The snowdrops are on display now, until the 4th of February, and the garden is open from 11 am to 4 pm every day.
