Dryad Nursery news 2024

Happy New Year to all our friends!
It looks like being an exceptionally early season so far with many snowdrops already in flower, and struggling through last year's debris in the borders because it's been too wet to get out and tidy up.
The hoop petticoat daffs are getting under way under cover as well, so it was possible to pick the pictured posy on Christmas Eve, all the blooms being of different cultivars.
As thoughts turn to the snowdrop season ahead, I thought it advisable to remind our customers that we no longer sell our snowdrops in growth in the spring, but only during the dormant season in our summer list.
I'm happy to say that last year, despite a terrible time with CITES certification, we were able to send a collection of almost all our snowdrop cultivars to our friends at Esker Farm Daffodils in Northern Ireland, who will be offering them from now on, and taking potted plants to shows over there. Watch their website https://www.eskerfarmdaffodils.com for news coming up!
Meanwhile I am impatiently watching buds on new and developing seedlings and will hopefully be sharing news on some new yellows later in the season.
I hope it is a great growing year for all of you!

I've spent the last week refurbishing my website, and I hope it is all working correctly now. I would appreciate it if you will let me know if you spot any howlers, or if pages or links are not working correctly. It should work on your devices too.
Hope you enjoy exploring it!

NEW on Anne's website is  her range of greetings cards featuring her botanical watercolours -  when she finds the time to do these I have no idea! Her schedule wears me out just thinking about it, but the Yorkshire perfectionist seems to manage a full 20 hour  working day!

 Her artwork is just lovely. .... take a look:  https://www.dryad-home.co.uk/cards

Thank you, Maggi! I don't have time for painting now. I should retire.  ;D ;D
