Snowdrops spree

THE Snowdrop Festival is under way in the Colzium Estate Walled Garden and is sure to draw gardening enthusiasts from far and wide.

Until March 15 (inclusive), the gardens will be opened Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 3.30pm and from 12pm to 4pm at weekends.

What’s more, guided walks will also be taking place each Saturday and Sunday, with talks on the special species to be seen in Kilsyth. Due to refurbishment works, there is no access to Colzium House, but toilets are available.
