Thanks Verdun - never heard of them.

Grasses for bees/butterflies?

Thanks Jim - it was glorious. And for the first time, I got to see everything calmly and thoroughly without kids in tow - even better!

Where are my snowdrops?

Lovely photo.

Thanks of all the tips, though now don't know whether to plant together or split! I only have small pot of 3 mind you...

I like the word galanthophile, nut

Yes, my mum is a star - hasn't a clue about plants, but that means I have fun doing up her pot plants on the balcony.

Thanks Berghill, will have a look at those.

Got a gift from my mum today -a pot of snowdrops in the green no less! Now have impossible task of deciding where to plant them!

Thought I'd post a couple of pics I took at RHS Wisley last weekend - it was a glorious Winter's day and the grasses/seed pods looked so beautiful. Proof that this lot even look stunning in Winter!

Before my time Forester  

Thanks Wonderboy - very chivalrous of you!

Will persist with the irritating music and presenter though, as a 1 hour-long gardening program is too good to miss!

I never even knew how many varieties there were Berghill - amazing.

Thanks for all the tips.

Now to find a snowdrop walk/garden to visit which isn't a million miles from us and where I can drool over the real McCoy!

I love the fact we have an hour-long gardening program at last (GW, take note!) and can only hope that GW may follow suit.

The topics so far have been interesting too.

The only issue I have with GBGR is the bloody soundtrack playing over the presenters' voices (I don't mind some music, when it's well placed and not on constantly in the background).

Oh and James Wong referring to every plant as "these guys" or "those guys" - would have happily wrung his neck the other night!
