Dorset's Delicious Bits | DORSET SNOWDROPS


dorset snowdrops

As I write this post, the snowdrops are at their most beautiful and are appearing in clumps and swathes all over the county.  Seeing their crisp, fresh colours always reminds me that although we are still feeling the wintery chills, Spring will shortly be with us.

I have been spending some of the afternoons (when the ground has been soft enough) digging up some of my larger clumps to separate.  Apparently, snowdrops should always be separated while they’re ‘in the green’ and sure enough, my newly planted little clumps have settled in nicely to the wildflower bank that I am creating this year. Now that is an extremely exciting project – which I will devote some posts to very soon.

Snowdrops look incredible when viewed on a grand scale, so with this in mind, I have picked out some great places in Dorset where it is possible to go and see this sight. I have put in some links to websites and maps if you would like more info…

I’m sorry that I didn’t go and visit these gardens myself – it was my intention! I unfortunately was struck with a lurgy of doom, had no voice and was pretty much told to stay in bed! 

Have a great Sunday everyone!


A tiny note – just to say, of course I don’t get any money for blogging about the gorgeous gems of Dorset – I do it for the love!
