Sunday 3rd February – Cancelled

Elworthy Cottage

11am – 4pm

Our very own HPS members, Mike and Jenny Spiller, will be opening to show their remarkable collection of snowdrops, amongst other late winter flowers.   Elworthy Cottage is well worth a visit if you have a passion for galanthus – the range of varieties is superb, and the nursery has a selection for sale, too.  Home-made teas available.
