Snowdrop Sunday

Bulbs are a spectacular feature at Doddington. With the snowdrops will be spots of bright pink cyclamen coum, drifts of delicately coloured crocus then daffodils (including rare Edwardian varieties) will appear followed by lent lilies, aconites, and snakes head fritillaries.

The spring bulb pageant was started in the 1950s by (current owner) Claire Birch's grandparents Ralph and Antonia Jarvis. Claire's father Antony Jarvis and late mother Victoria continued the work and Antony estimates that he has planted or moved 150,000 bulbs in the last 25 years!

Claire added a further 5000 snowdrops to the nature trail with some money she inherited from her maternal Grandmother Cecily Mathias.

'Cecily's snowdrops' have now been enjoyed by visitors since 2005.
