Inside Snowdrop Day 2018
Saturday 3 February was an exciting day in the AGS calendar - Snowdrop Day! It’s the perfect opportunity for Galanthophiles to gather together, share their love of these beautiful plants and pick up a few to take home with them.
It was a sell-out event with plenty to see and do.
Take a peek inside this year’s popular event…
AGS President Christopher Bailes provided a warm welcome to attendees. (Pictured above with Vice-President Christopher Bickell and Jeanette Bickell.)
