This is a tag on to the Rhubarb Festival Weekend in Wakefield  - but all welcome to just come to this event.

Join us to see the winter walk and snowdrops at this popular  RHS Garden The winter walk was expanded and refreshed in 2016 and now incorporates layers of planting, from tiny bulbs to statuesque trees, each with features that shine in winter – although many of these plants look good throughout the year.

Take a late winter stroll through the Woodland to see large swathes of the common snowdrop Galanthus nivalis lighting up the woodland floor. 90,000 90,000 bulbs were planted here in recent years and the result is quite spectacular.   There are new snowdrop plantings to discover around the lily pond near the garden entrance too.

Head into the Alpine House to warm up among our pick of seasonal alpine plants, including snowdrops and Primula allionii, one of the earliest primroses to flower. The snowdrop collection has been re-organised, making it easier to spot differences between cultivars. Favourites include Galanthus ‘Greenfinch’ for its green brush-stroke markings on the outer petals and beautiful yellow-coloured ‘Primrose Warburg’.
