Cluny has a wide range of beautiful snowdrops dotted throughout the garden interspersed with other early spring flowers including Asiatic primulas, hellebores, winter aconites and cyclamen. Leucojums or snowflakes, a relative of the snowdrop with their lampshade-like bells, also do extremely well at Cluny and have a long flowering season. Chasing in and around Cluny’s snowdrop clumps watch out for any number of red squirrels.
