The Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey


The Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey in Cambridgeshire is one of the sights of the season. We had gone to admire the snowdrops (and they were super) but it was the varied winter plantings of trees and shrubs that captured our attention. Excellent restaurant and plant stalls with wide variety, including a range of snowdrops. "You say to ask about  'Anglesey Orange Tip'. 'We have one left.' 'How much?' '£95.'
'Er sorry .....'

The gardens have more than 250 varieties of snowdrop. Here snowdrops are mixed with hellebore

Winter aconites and snowdrops combine wonderfully

Anglesey Abbey itself with a fascinating collection from all over the world

  2. I would love to visit someday, and see the winter garden in person. What a beautiful setting, and of course well photographed.
