Great idea Star- group photo!
Ravingham looks lovely - one to checkout soon.
Will let good friend of mine know about the E. Anglian snowdrop trail, as he lives in Norwich and would love too see them some time.
Thanks everyone- planted mine from dry bulbs in autumn but not so much as one so far - garden totally in shade from November to February (west facing but with some tall buildings shading it from low winter sun). Only one small pot at front of house which faces east and has had winter sun, has a few shooting snowdrops in it.
Is it because it has been very mild in London up to a few days ago?
Do they need a hard frost to come out?
I planted many and would be gutted if nothing came if it
If you are all looking for a fabulous Spring/Summer garden in Norfolk, try The Old Vicarage Garden in Ruston - an eye-opener for me last April!
Too far for me, sadly but have a lovely time all and do post some pics!
Think I'll get my snowdrop fix from Wisley this year!
www.plantsforshade.co.uk (Long Acre Farm) are very friendly, answer individual queries and send out plants in fabulous condition and beautifully packed. Have used them several times now.
I've got skimmia in a shady, cold and quite exposed spot- it does very well, with lovely flowers and berries.
My new addition sarcococca is also settling in well to the same north side of my small garden- I'm aware it may not have as many flowers and berries aif one in a less shady spot though.
good to know Green M thanks
