Snowdrop Days at The Chelsea Physic Garden




Okay once this blizzard has abated we may all feel like venturing out and when we do there is so much to do even in the winter months. A visit to The Chelsea Physic Garden is definitely on my to-do list for a wander and I may well target one of their Snowdrop Days which are the first week in February.

The garden doesn't officially open until March 29th, but from 2nd - 10th February they have a series of guided walks to see the snowdrops and to take in a talk or two (there's even one on bee-keeping which I quite fancy, beats chickens in the suburbs anyday). For a full list visit The Chelsea Physic Garden's website for the full list of walks and talks.

The Chelsea Physic Garden is the second oldest botanical garden in England and was founded in 1673 to promote the growth of plants for healing purposes. It is a walled garden in the heart of London and is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
