Early signs of spring at Batsford Arboretum

Early signs of spring at Batsford Arboretum

Despite harsh weather conditions during December and January, Batsford Arboretum are experiencing early signs of spring, providing a glimmer of hope that warmer temperatures and longer days are on the horizon!
Visitors to the 56 acre Arboretum, near Moreton in Marsh, can expect to see coppery-orange Hamamelis x intermedia 'Jelena' (witch hazel), pink and white flowers of Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' and the highly-fragrant Chimonanthus praecox (wintersweet). Early-flowering daffodils ‘January Gold’, Galanthus woronowii (giant snowdrop) and Cyclamen coum are also in flower, making the Arboretum feel particularly spring-like.
A real early spring highlight at Batsford is the magnificent swathes of snowdrops which typically reach their peak during February, however some parts of the Arboretum are already showing signs of a good display by the end of this month, a little earlier than usual.
More information about Batsford, including up-to-date information on the snowdrops, is available from
