Good Gardens to take in some Snowdrop Action

February is a wonderful time to visit one of the UK’s many snowdrop collections. Have your camera ready at Benington Lordship in Hertfordshire, where huge drifts of single and double snowdrops carpet the moat of a ruined Norman castle.  Anglesey Abbey near Cambridge is home to one of the most significant snowdrop collections in the country, with some 240 cultivars to enjoy and compare. Or, take a stroll through the woodland at Cambo Estate Gardens in Fife, carpeted with snowdrops, snowflakes and aconites.
