If you come to Edinburgh during the Snowdrop Festival, you will experience unforgettable moments full of winter beauty. You will find that plenty of gardens open especially for this festival and all of them feature amazing displays of snowdrops. Meander through the finest gardens in Edinburgh and be amazed by the impressive white rug of snowdrops covering the nearby woods. You can also take a short walk along the shore, breathe some fresh air, and take pictures of the fabulous spectacle around you. Don’t forget to buy a couple of snowdrop bulbs if you want to recreate the scenery in your backyard. They can easily grow in flowerpots as well.​
