This year marks 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl, the world’s number one storyteller. Cheshire’s Tatton Park* is part of the official Roald Dahl 100 celebrations with Roald Dahl’s Tremendous Adventures at Tatton Park – a year-long programme of fun activities for all the family including themed trails, film screenings, exhibitions and more .
Following Tatton Park’s silver gilt winning Big Friendly Garden at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park. – inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved book The BFG – two volunteers have now spotted what is believed to be a Snozzcumber in Tatton Park’s gardens!
Resembling a giant cucumber with black and white stripes and covered in warts, Snozzcumbers are the staple diet of the famous Big Friendly Giant.
Head Gardener Simon Tetlow said: “We’re very excited to have discovered what appears to be a Snozzcumber in the kitchen gardens whilst picking fresh produce for our Gardener’s Cottage lunch menu. We made a prompt decision not to offer this to our chef having found that it tastes of cockroaches and slime wanglers!
