Snowdrop bulbs

Yes, it's your choice which company you get them from Nick. Come February time there'll be plenty of choice. 

I love a good tangent

Unless you have lots of money and a collecting nature you should avoid all those named varieties that appear on ebay for lots of money. For a good patch of white you want single snowdrops, Galanthus nivalis. They seed and make new buls. The bulbs multiply as well and you can split them up and a new clump will form.

They come in doubles as well, that's Galanthus nivali which are quite pretty, clump up well but don't set seed and are probably no good for any early bees

I can't remember where mine came from.

google 'snowdrops in the green'

A galanthophile told me that summer is good for moving them. But keeping them out of the ground is never good

I did a price comparison with the post office and one of the carriers today, 2.5KG parcel

£12+ for the PO and £5+ for the carrier. Am I allowed to say which carrier? I don't work for them 

I don't think the post office want the business

Hi Windsong and mg smith (sorry mg smith, it's all true wot Dove said) welcome both.

Next seed swap due as soon as anything makes some seed Windsong. I sent and received a lot of stuff this year


I'm all behind on the garden prog. Watching on iplayer and sometimes my less  than superfast rural broadband can't get up enough steam to make it play.

Could this be an ad? 

I'm always suspicious when a member's first post advertises a company.

Nice one, but I'd have to heat the GH or bring it indoors, I'm going to watch the garden programme link now

Will my aubretia survive a December transplant?

Some grit would open up the soil a bit, mix some in and put some round the neck of the plant as well.
