    The Garden House, Devon invites you to discover its sumptuous collection of snowdrops and enjoy the early signs of spring between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th January, and every weekend during February (when its tea-room also reopens). The snowdrops - amassed by co-author of Snowdrops: A monograph of cultivated galanthus, Matt Bishop - are displayed and labelled in herbaceous borders and naturalised with other early flowering bulbs throughout the ten acre, sheltered garden that is maintained and developed by The Fortescue Garden Trust.
