Green fingered enthusiasts can enjoy a double day of flower power on Saturday 18 February with a Snowdrop and early spring walk as well as a special viewing of the best of the early Irises at the beautifully restored Myddelton House Gardens in Enfield.


Head Gardener Andrew Turvey, who trained at the Royal Horticultural Society and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Gardens, will lead two guided walks to marvel at the exquisite snowdrops as well as other early spring flowering plants.


The tours cost 3.50 per person, last for one hour and start at either 11am or 2pm. The guided walks with Andrew Turvey are extremely popular and advance booking is suggested.


Also returning for the second year, from 12 noon to 4pm, is the British Iris Society Early Spring Show, offering the opportunity to view some of the best of the early award winning Irises for which Myddelton House Gardens is renowned.
