Well, the 1st Feb certainly brought a rush of activity here at the Garden. There is no doubt that the snowdrop season has started much later this year than for many years and this sign of the cold winter we are having has sparked the interest of the press.
Yesterday we saw press photographers and a TV camera man. The day finished at 6.30 when the local ITV weather was broadcast live from the Garden. despite the pitch black, the snowdrops looked great under the spotlights!
I took this photo yesterday which shows the state of play of the main area of the display and as you can see the flowers are all now beginning to show.
