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…
