Nature enthusiasts can start to wave goodbye to winter with the arrival of Painswick Rococo Garden’s famous snowdrops, bringing the first signs of spring to Gloucestershire this January and February 2022.
While it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when they’ll bloom, the resilient little flowers typically make an appearance in late January to early February – with the Rococo Garden opening daily to give locals the chance to wrap up warm and see them from Saturday 15 January to Sunday 27 February 2022.
The well-loved pleasure garden boasts one of the UK’s largest natural plantings of snowdrops, attracting visitors looking to get their flower fix every winter.
Sitting in a hidden valley, the scenic spot is home to 15 different varieties of the distinctive white flower – including the tall, honey-scented Galanthus ‘Atkinsii’, which is said to have been first discovered in Painswick back in the 1800s.
With fanciful follies, a rustic play area and a fun children’s trail in place, as well as a café to refuel after woodland walks and the option to take your four-legged friends along, it makes a fun-filled family day out, too.
Hopeful snowdrop spotters can keep an eye on Painswick Rococo Garden’s website and social media for regular updates to catch the blooms at their most beautiful this winter 2022.
Admission to Painswick Rococo Garden must be booked online in advance.
