Planting 1000′s of snowdrops

The Shepton Mallet Horticultural Society have organised the planting of more than 130,000 snowdrops this autumn.

On Saturday, volunteers planted the orchard at Showering’s Cider Mill with 10,000 bulbs.  The 1st Shepton Mallet Beaver Group lent a hand despite the drizzle.  We are grateful to Showerings Cider Mill for sponsoring this.

Also this week , 7000 snowdrops have been planted in a 700 square foot drift in Collett Park to commemorate next year’s 700th year of the granting of the market charter for Shepton Mallet.
