09 February 2009 – 15 February 2009
Spring is in the air and what better place to witness it first hand than at Altamont Gardens who celebrate their eagerly awaited Snowdrop Week from 9th – 15th February 2009. Altamont Gardens are an enchanting blend of formal and informal gardens with riverside walks covering over 40 acres and are widely regarded as the jewel in Ireland’s gardening crown. Lawns bisected by sculpted yews slope down to a lake surrounded by rare trees and lead in turn to a very different garden featuring exotic shrubs and trees. The Walled Garden, which features the Corona North Commemorative Border has one of the most unique herbaceous plant collections in the country.
