THE snowdrops at Higher Cherubeer, two miles east of Dolton, near Winkleigh, open for the charities supported by the National Gardens Scheme (NGS), get the year’s garden visiting off to a great start.

Devon galanthophile, Jo Hynes, has more than 300 types of snowdrop in her one acre garden at Higher Cherubeer (EX19 8PP) which is open on Friday. February 10, Friday, February 17 and Sunday, February 26, from 2pm to 5pm for the NGS.

The woodland paths are lined with around 300 named snowdrops, hellebores and winter flowering shrubs.

As well as many other spring flowering flowers, Jo has a National Collection of Hardy cyclamen. There will be refreshments and plants on sale including snowdrops. Admission is £4 and children are free.

At NGS open gardens all the money taken at the gate goes direct to Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Hospices UK, Carers Trust and other nursing and caring charities which are supported by the NGS. The money taken for the teas and plants also goes direct to the charities unless stated otherwise.
