Galanthus January 2007
« on: January 04, 2007, 08:33:59 PM »
I'll kick off January with a web site update. I have now added a new photo gallery page with very few species prefixes http://www.snowdropinfo.com/gallery2007-2.htm A few people have ask for it. Some names no longer make sense eg 'Greentip' and twins. I have kept some in. It's not live just yet!

Many thanks John Finch and Brian Ellis for proof reading the whole site.

thanks Franz.

I'm off today and it's another lovely day but not as warm as yesterdays 12C.

This is G. Bess which is quite plain compared to some 'modern' varieties

yes they are along with up to 20 others including, and I whisper, a yellow tipped 'Castlegar' still inside the spathe but very clearly marked. It better open!

Hi All

can I just check where I am meant to post any snowdrop pictures I take.

The obvious place to me would be within the 'Flowers and Foliage Now' section (isn't this where it was on the old forum?) - but pictures are becoming divided between that section (Early January 2007) and the 'Bulbs General' area (Galanthus January 2007).  I don't think this is clear enough for newcomers to the forum.

Is this new thread 'Galanthus January 2007' supposed to be used for posting pictures or just general Galanthus chat?  If it is for posting pictures is there a way it can be placed under 'Flowers and Foliage Now' to make it easier to find.  If just for chat could the thread title perhaps be adapted to explain that.

I do agree with having a seperate thread for Galanthus flowers at this time of year but if I am struggling with understanding where to find it and put things I am sure new members/'lurkers' will be too.  It would seem a good idea to get things clear whilst the forum is still young as I fear it could become rather messy/disjointed otherwise.

with many thanks

John

I personally think keeping single species bulbs in here would be better and keeping flowering now for misc. plants We'll see what the Boss says

Now, John, you are our special OOAgent, and I know you white fever sufferers, you can root out a snowdrop from half a mile, finding this page shouldn't be too hard!

Hi, JoF, good to be here. Happy New Year to you, too!

Paddy if you, or anyone else, is interested I can email you a list of snowdrops in flower now. Just ask. I did a count this morning and there are 23 out.
