Copton Ash Gardens and Nursery is located in Faversham, Kent. Previously a cherry orchard, the gardens have been developed since 1978 by Tim Ingram and in the early days, his mother; Tim's wife, Gillian, gives a helping hand nowadays.
Whilst being passionate about alpine plants, Tim has also a soft spot for snowdrops which he grows as a naturalistic woodland plant. He has built an extensive collection from old cultivars like Galanthus 'S.Arnott', yellow forms such as G. 'Wendy's Gold', to Greatorex Doubles G. 'Titania' and the green form of G. 'Cowhouse Green'. From late January onwards, whilst most gardens are still dormant, Copton Ash Gardens are filled with clusters of bright white snowdrops bringing light to the gloomiest winter days.
