Thursday 8th February - Snowdrop Visits

Snowdrop visits in  the Wiveliscombe area of Somerset visiting Junkers Nursery and Elworthy Cottage Plants.

Junkers has a delectable range of unusual trees and shrubs which are underplanted with swathes of named varieties of snowdrops. In February the Daphne and Hamamelis will be in flower and along with the snowdrops are very good carpets of cyclamen. You will be able to collect pre-ordered plants.

Elworthy Cottage Plants is a specialist nursery for herbaceous perennials and snowdrops with some alpines and a one acre plantsman's garden. There will be snowdrops for sale and  their mail order list will be sent out to people who have booked for the visit.

Tables for lunch will be booked at a pub near Junkers.

AGM 2024 Saturday 2nd November Holton Village Hall, near Oxford.


 This is definitely one of the most complicated flowers I've painted but the flowers are so beautiful it's worth persevering.
