26 February 2019 – shared transport
This visit replaces the proposed visit to Anglesey Abbey. Anglesey Abbey no longer allow a separate visit to the gardens – the house must be included which makes admission quite pricey!

“Over the last few years, interest in snowdrops and hellebores, and their varieties, has grown immensely. Coton Manor will be open for 16 days for visitors to come and see the varied selection of snowdrops and hellebores that are grown in the Garden. As usual the whole nursery is open with focus on winter and spring flowers including our own Coton snowdrop, hellebores, erythroniums, primulas, hepaticas and tulips.
We are privileged to be able to offer hellebores and snowdrops from Suffolk based Chelsea gold medal winners, Harvey's Garden Plants, including exclusive supply of Helleborus 'Winter Moonbeam', a selection of Doubles, Primrose Yellows, Slate Blue and new double flowered variety 'Tutu' with enhanced nectaries!”
