Dryad Gold Group snowdrops update
« on: May 30, 2015, 01:30:36 PM »
There has been a lot of interest in the Dryad Golds, and requests for them to be released for sale. As some of you will know, I have been trialling some of the varieties with friends and have been pleased by their reports, and the performance of the plants here in my garden. I think they are really special (doesn't every mother think that about their children?).
I have now named and registered some, and I hope the first 2 or 3 varieties will be available this summer, but there will be a VERY limited supply until I can bulk them up further.
After a huge amount of debate and consultation (you know who you are) the first releases will be on ebay next month (seller name: dryadzny), and I hope to have some in my summer list. Some customers have also asked that I auction some of my bulbs on ebay, because they can't be quick enough off the mark for the rarer things in my list, which usually go within half an hour of the list being uploaded.
There will be a maximum of 5 bulbs available this summer, of 3 varieties:
Dryad Gold Medal =clone 5
Dryad Gold Sovereign = clone 6
Dryad Gold Bullion = clone 8
Complying with requests to simplify my numbering system for my yellow seedlings, I've now got a simple consecutive number system.  Please will those people who have been trialling for me ask me for the new numbers/names for their clones?
I hope there will be a short article in the International Rock Gardener next month introducing the new names.

I can confirm that  the names and pictures of Anne's golden snowdrops will be published in the IRG for June 2015, to be online at the end of that month

For those who don't remember the previous discussions on the "Dryad Golds"  see these links :

    It's one of the group of seedlings from Wendy's Gold x lutescens that I showed last year. As a working name, I'm using 'Dryad Gold series' with a clone number so I can put DG1, DG5 etc on the labels. Saves graphite. ;)


Aha, I remember now - and here's a link to Anne's great post with  a compilation of an array of the seedlings -

Some new, super rare and delightful 'Yellows'...what wonderful news  :P

All backed with the years of trialling and reliability assurance of Anne!

These will be going on Ebay at the end of June, is that correct Anne?

I have already loosed the 'Kraken' to make sure he bids,  ;D with the small number available, relying on the list is just too chancy! I don't like using Ebay to buy drops BUT with the guarantee of source, it is a must  ;D Thanks for the Ebay ID, could you give us a heads up when you are listing?

More pictures please!

Fear not Ingrid,  more photos in the IRG when the names are published.
As you imply, there are some strange goings-on on Ebay, but when the provenance is secure it's a much happier prospect.

Thanks Maggi, the re;iable provenace will make these key targets!

I am reassured by the fact that you are not a felloew 'Yellow' lover  ;D I am not sure an online tussle between you and the Kraken would be an edifying sight, even though my money would be on you  ;D ;D ;D

Hmm, Maggi versus the Kraken?  ::) I imagine there would be a goodly number willing to pay for tickets for that particular spectacle.  T'would be messy though! :P

Any chance we can see a sneak peek at some of the forthcoming photos?????????  :P

These will be top targets as they probably won't be available at Myddelton next year as Anne does not attend. That means I cannot even rely on the 'Young Gazelle' to deliver on the day  ;D

Glad to oblige!  :D
I'll be listing them in about 3 weeks. I need them to go fully dormant, then I will check the bulbs before offering them.

Thanks for the photos Anne, they look wonderful! My acquisition team has set up the required Ebay searches but do let us know when your listing is imminent!  8)

Well, we have had a huge diamond caper this year, it looks like the 'Great Bullion Job' is on the way  ;D We proably need to inform George Osbourne that the 'Propensity to Save' will increase in the short term  ;D

I agree Brian, Bullion is probably my top target, until I look at the other photos...  :P

Just to be clear, is the correct name Dryad Gold Something or just Gold Something?  Personally, I like the Dryad prefix.
Almost in Scotland.
