How exciting to hear we may all be able to have a very special snowdrop in our gardens in the near future. Last Thursday Thompson & Morgan won at auction the world’s most expensive snowdrop Galanthus woronowii ‘Elizabeth Harrison’.
Costing £725 Thompson & Morgan will now set about commercial production via tissue culture, no easy task.
When T&M bought the world’s first Black Hyacinth Midnight Mystique in 1998 it took 15 years before it was available to gardeners.
To celebrate T&M are offering 75 bulbs of Galanthus nivalis, a single flowered snowdrop, for £7.99, that’s less than half the usual price. Click here to view details.
Snowdrops always give a lift to the spirits in the depths of winter – the promise of warmer times to come.
