 Oh, that is too bad.  My Greenflake dwindled away without progeny, and my friend who discovered it might have one weak little plant left (she hopes).  We went to the garden where she found it and searched all around, hoping that perhaps it had dropped seeds, but there were no others at all like it.

We've just discovered that it is in Freda Cox's book on snowdrops.  Does that mean you gave her one?  Or anyone else?  It would be a shame if such a pretty flower no longer exists anywhere.

I don't know of anyone still growing it - perhaps it only survives as a memory.
I have found that not all the bulbs that I raise from seed are long lived some dwindle after a few years whether it is our conditions or just a week clone and a genetic dead end I can only speculate. Sadly some of the ones we lost have been very attractive happily there are always more survivors.

There are plenty of flowers to see, inside and out, in this week's Bulb Log including Snowdrops, Narcissus and  the first Erythronium.

Lovely to see the small white things still looking good up in the frozen (even further )north. The snowdrops are pretty impressive too!
MINIONS! I need more minions!

We may have to be in isolation but with mass community plantings the garden is not - so much colour to see in this Bulb Log.

Hi Ian,

Another great show. Iím envious of your cooling sea breezes and your Trillium rivale that looks to be thriving. My sole survivor is in a pot so that I can move it somewhere cool in the summer (here in landlocked Switzerland even the shaded parts of the garden gets dry in summer). Another reason for keeping it in a pot was my understanding that it wasnít fully hardy, but your clump proves that to be wrong. In conclusion, I think Iím going to plant mine into a shaded bed (that already has T. erectum) - it hasnít been thriving and this may be the (last) chance that it needs.

Best regards,

Keith
