Scottish Snowdrop Festival
Snowdrops, the magical, botanical gems that herald the onset of Spring are being celebrated during the Scottish Snowdrop Festival 2024.
Our Gardens at Edinburgh, Dawyck and Logan are participating in the festival which runs from 25 January to 11 March and is organised by Discover Scottish Gardens.
Snowdrop and spring interest walks at Edinburgh
Experience the scents, sights, and growing delights of early spring on a spring interest walk. Join our Garden Guides each weekend for an introduction to our specialist snowdrop collection, including an explanation of the different species and cultivars, and to our collection of spring plants and bulbs including Narcissus, Fritillaria and Iris as well as other plants of interest.
Walks will be held each Saturday and Sunday at 11am until 25 February 2024.
