Snowdrops

GG Snowdrop Report and Open Garden

There were over 100 members and visitors for Gordon’s excellent talk on Galanthus, or Snowdrops to the majority of us!

Through some beautiful photography he demonstrated the subtle differences in appearance, size and cultivation of some of the many known species. With over 1500 named varieties and cultivars spanning from Spain to Russia, it is possible to have snowdrops in bloom here from October through to late March. Rare bulbs can command many hundreds of pounds.

Gordon and Judith will be opening their lovely ‘snowdrop extravaganza’ garden to GG members, friends and villagers on Saturday 11th February between 10 – 12pm. A rare opportunity to discuss and see so many varieties in-situ, and perhaps purchase one or two for your own garden.
