More about the Shepton Mallet Snowdrop Festival...

Shepton Mallet, in the heart of Somerset, was home to James Allen, an amateur horticulturalist and the first person ever to breed new varieties of snowdrops from wild plants - a feat which earned him the  nickname of the 'Snowdrop King.

Most of Mr. Allen's snowdrop varieties were lost to disease but a few remain, including Galanthus 'Magnet' (the symbol of the project) and Galanthus 'Merlin', both of which have been granted the Award of Garden Merit by the RHS and both of which are being propagated and planted around Shepton Mallet
