We only discovered Felley Priory last summer. The garden is one for the plant collector being full of choice shrubs and perennials, all clearly labelled and serviced by a nursery that unusually seems to source its own plants from the gardens rather than some huge Dutch transporter. It is situated only half a mile from Junction 27 of the M1 though due to its setting in a hidden valley one would hardly know it, Sophia and Victoria Chaworth-Musters, granddaughters of Major Robert Chawarth-Musters who purchased the house in 1973, live in the  house itself, parts of which date back to 1557 and, I have to say, the gardens are manicured to a very high standard. For today I shall content myself with documenting some of the varieties of snowdrops that took my fancy. Later I’ll post other views and winter plants. I also bought some roses from there in the summer and in time I’ll post about these too.

And my favourite on the day…. “Silbertoft Manor”
