There is life in winter
During the winter most plants die off, and we are left with a depressing view of leafless trees and bare colourless gardens. But there is hope. One little flower still thrives during our coldest months: the snowdrop. Those beautiful white flowers are currently blooming in our front garden. Could they possibly be in yours as well?

If not, visit the Chelsea Physic Garden between the 2nd - 10th February and you will enjoy a snowdrop extravaganza. Learn about all the different varieties on a Snowdrop Trail, and see them on display at the Snowdrop Theatre.

There will be free guided tours with our guides, talks, walks, and workshops with admittance between 10am-4pm. Entrance costs 9 for adults or 6 for children. Tickets can be bought on the day, but any of the workshops and course on offer need to be pre-booked by calling 020 7349 6471.
