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.
