“In the Garden with Kathryn”: Snowdrops!

With snowing falling on the Chestnut Garden today, my thoughts turned to snowdrops! I have a few popping their dainty little heads up and I am sure they will soon be blanketed with snow. I recently read about a new snowdrop book in one of my English garden publications. The book came out in 2014 and is THE PLANT LOVER’S GUIDE TO SNOWDROPS, by Naomi Slade.

I first became interested in snowdrops on a visit to Welford Park in Berkshire. I was visiting a friend who lives in Dorset, England and we went to Welford to see the snowdrops, which seemed to blanket this property!

I just ordered this little book from Amazon. The book profiles 60 hybrids, species and cultivars and gives information on flowering time, designing with snowdrops, and how to grow and propagate them. Now I can’t wait until it arrives to learn more about these lovely little green and white flowers.

    Alas…we have snow drifts covering our snow drops. We transplanted 8 “bundles” from our previous home and ALL eight clusters were blooming. franki

  2. Snowdrops remind me of hope for the new year ahead. As you say, it is lovely to see them brave enough to burst through the clay to the cold weather that is still with us.
    Happy Planting,

    Kathleen,
    It is so lovely to hear from you! I just can’t wait to get back out in my garden. But I will have to been content to read my new snowdrop book until spring arrives. Hope all is well in your beautiful area!! Soon I can start doing my all things Irish posts during the month of March.

    We’ve been covered with ice here in the Nashville area. Snowdrops popping up means that Spring and warmer weather are soon here! Thanks for the reading suggestion!

    Luke,
    I received my snowdrop book today and it looks really great! I am so ready for spring! I wanted a big, beautiful snow, but instead we have a bit of snow and lots of ice! Stay warm and safe!
    Kathryn
