Someone paid £725 for one bulb a few days ago http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/9087106/Mutant-snowdrop-sells-for-725.html
This garden didn't have any snowdrops when we came here so I'm starting from scratch, and think I've got the bug. I've bought just a few 'specials' this year, I think the most I paid was £10 for a bulb growing in a pot but the majority were cheaper - around £7 for three or £3 each - and of course the G. nivalis and Flore pleno are usually around £3 for 10 or £15 for 100. I've bought some of the different species so we may even get some interesting crosses
I don't know anything about Bakewell Tart, but Galanthus Nivalis 'Blewberry Tart' is being sold by Foxgrove Plants for £10 per bulb.
