Snowdrop And Apple Events Will Extend Springhead Trust’s Calendar

Some unusual varieties of snowdrops have been donated to Fontmell Magna’s Springhead Trust.

They will complement the Shaftesbury snowdrop collection, which Springhead’s team also look after.

Director Edward Parker says his staff intend to extend their annual events calendar into winter with snowdrop viewing.

Edward’s colleague Catherine Simmons tells us how two old orchards are currently being restored at Springhead. They will be the focus for apple-based events, which will offer more community activity from autumn 2022. Eddie explains how the old apple varieties taste different to today’s commercial crops.
