Snowdrops, daffodils and a new hawthorn tree in Crabtree Fields

Snowdrops and wild daffodils.
Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) and wild daffodils (Narcissus pseudonarcissus) are blooming in Crabtree Fields.

Spring is on its way in Fitzrovia’s open spaces. The Friends planted a number of different woodland-floor flowers last year and the first of those are blooming now.

Snowdrops have been out for a couple of weeks and daffodils are starting to bloom. Expect to see more surprises popping up later this spring.

Semi-mature tree.
Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) planted this week in Crabtree Fields.

Camden Council has also planted a semi-mature hawthorn tree this week to replace a rowan that was removed last year. Hawthorn is an important native tree and supports a variety of wildlife as well as having an attractive early spring blossom with a delicate scent.
