This has been posted on Facebook by Blacksmiths Cottage Nursery

~~~~NO Snowdrop Event This Year~~~~
"Please note, we aren't holding a snowdrop sale or talk this year. We are aware that one has been advertised for the 20th, but this is a mistake, as we are away and our house sitters will be fully preoccupied with our animal collection and ongoing site projects.
Other events in Norfolk can be found at East Ruston Old Vicarage (Sale-4th Feb), Little Plumstead Walled Garden etc. ""
