Snowdrop season is coming to Batsford Arboretum

Brave the cold for a winter walk amongst the snowdrops as Batsford Arboretum bursts into bloom – with thousands of the pretty white flowers shooting up this January and February 2022.

Spring is officially on the way with sightings of snowdrops across Gloucestershire – and Batsford Arboretum near Moreton-in-Marsh is home to one of the county’s most spectacular displays.

Every February, visitors can explore the 56-acre arboretum as it bursts into life, with thousands of snowdrops transforming the winter landscape into a floral display that belongs on your Instagram grid.

With Batsford’s expert gardening team having planted countless snowdrops over the years, the seasonal display only gets more and more impressive each year.

Complemented by the yellow hues of early flowering daffodils and vibrant aconites, as well as pretty pastel cyclamen and daphnes, Batsford Arboretum boasts a gorgeous spring palette to brighten up a winter’s day.

Green-fingered visitors who find themselves inspired by the arboretum’s snowdrops can create their own displays at home, with snowdrops ‘in the green’ available to buy at Batsford Garden Centre.

In addition to snowdrops and spring-flowering bulbs, the arboretum is home to over 1,000 botanical species from across the world, delighting nature lovers, horticulturalists and anyone with a passion for the great outdoors.

There’s also a children’s trail and play area to keep little ones entertained, as well as light refreshments and hot lunches served at the Garden Terrace Café. Dogs on short leads are welcome, too.

Batsford Arboretum is open daily from 9.30am to 5pm on Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

Visitors must book tickets online in advance via, costing £8.95 for adults, £3.50 for children aged four to 16 and free for little ones under four.
