Just found missing snowdrop named after my daughter

image

This is galanthus ikariae Bonnie Scott, a snowdrop named after my daughter when she was a baby in 2008.
It was grown by famed snowdrop guru Jim Leatherland in Northamptonshire, and I thought I’d lost it. But buried among some overgrown hardy geranium, with a couple of flowers and its stripy leaves, there it is, nearly eight years on and still alive! 
I must split it and move it once it’s G finished flowering, this time writing down where it is!

Snowdrop open day

Noted galanthophile Jim Leatherland opens his private garden in Hollowell, north of Northampton (up Church Hill, follow signs) tomorrow, Sunday February 27, between 11am-3pm.
If snowdrops are your passion, there are over 200 different types and you can also buy some ‘in the green’ to plant up at home. All in aid of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) charity.

A short drive away over at Coton Manor Gardens, you can catch the last Snowdrop and Hellebore open day with admission at £3.
