Nothing to beat a nice bit of shortbread. Have been busy gardening as the weather has been lovely here today so no tea and biscuits for me.
Hi there. I think it is a Leucothoe. Plant in shade or semi-shade in a moist peaty soil and it should make a good recovery. Good luck.
Yeah - very sad. A great writer. May he rest in peace.
Finally found out the origin of Brin. It was given to Lady Erskine by Dick Trotter (of Trotter's Merlin fame) from his garden S/W of Inverness. He was a great friend of E.A. Bowles. A lovely Galanthus very strong in stature. Hoping it does well in my garden.
I have about 45 different ones at the moment - still hoping to add a few this season - if funds can run to it!!!!
I have Wendy's Gold, Lady Elphinstone, Green Brush, Ophelia Tiny Tim, Viridapice and lots more. Bought Little Dancer, Fieldgate Superb and a good few more last week at Cambo!!!!!
Yes - looked up Avon bulbs - will wait to see what Cambo come up with. Hoping they will respond in the next day or so. I paid for a specialist Galanthus so hoping this is one!!!! Thanks again
i have recently started collecting Galanthus and wonder if anyone is interested in doing swaps. I have hundreds of Nivalis and Flore Plena - anyone out there that can oblige? Cheers
Thank you - I have contacted Cambo today and they will try to find out any info for me. Will keep you posted on the results. Many thanks.
Can anyone give me any feedback on the origin of Galanthus Brin. Unable to find it in any Snowdrop reference books. I would appreciate any info. Thank you.
