Take your pick, 1Runnymede1 - their variety, everyone different like people themselves,their appealing form and colour in the midst of drab winter, their dependabilty once established, their promiscuity, the lack of competition in the winter. The ease with which you can propagate them too. Probably as many reasons as there are people who grow them. My love affair with them started 61 years ago.on my honeymoon. I was married on Feb.27th and a snow storm started on our journey down to East Lambrook where we were to honeymoon. On the many stops going I spotted snowdrops in the hedgerows and my new husband valiantly cleared paths so I could see the snowdrops pushing their heads through the snow as he had to carry me being devoid of stout boots. I expect many of them are still there.
