Snowdrops were blooming marvellous


GARDENERS and nature lovers went on a “snowdrop walk” at Glazebury – to raise money for charity.
Bent’s Garden Centre chief John Bent and near neighbour Delia Caswell opened their gardens to the public on two Sundays to show off their huge snowdrop collections.
Mr Bent’s garden is famous for the wide variety of the species he has, as well as a number of helibores, including the Christmas Rose. Mrs Caswell’s garden is equally famed for the sheer number of snowdrops.
This year has been a good one for snowdrops, although many arrived later than usual. Visitors to both gardens were able to admire thousands of the tiny flowers – and at Mrs Caswell’s enjoyed the added bonus of tea and crumpets.
A collection was be made at both houses with the proceeds going to McMillan Nurses, Glazebury Methodist Church and Phakamisa, a charity that helps impoverished communities and orphans of AIDS in South Africa.
