Do Snowdrops look best close up or planted on mass?
Hard to say looking at the images but a good day out in February is to take a snow drop walk.
Close up Snow drops are delicate and beautifully marked.
On mass, the image shows a great combination of snowdrops on mass with the white barked Himalayan Birch which has very white stark bark which looks great with the Snowdrops; this image was taken at Dunham Massey in Cheshire
If you fancy a snowdrop walk the National trust web site has suggestions for the best snow drop walks all over the country.
