Galanthus Feb 22
« on: February 01, 2022, 01:48:48 PM »
It’s pollination day today, for my biggest clump of little G. sandersii. Always a messy business, so I thought I’d take a few photos before the carnage starts!

Really an enviable clump, and of a well-shaped selection, also!

Yesterday we enjoyed some sunshine, too, and I was able to take a few pics.

An ordinary G. woronowii with a seedling  of Eranthis hyemalis.



An unusually early G. n. var. scharlockii



Early, reliable and floriferous: ´Warley Belles´



And the earliest yellow snowdrop in my garden: ´Golden Fleece´



´Golden Fleece´is available since several years now - does anybody know other varieties similar to this one?

Mariette, so lovely pictures of snowdrops with other plants! It looks that you had a wonderful weather.
I had to google 'Warley Belles',and it has a nice story behind it coming from Ellen Willmotts garden, and a good looking snowdrop, too.

I didn't know 'Golden Fleece' was an early yellow, always new things to learn. Thank you. :)

Joe Sharman shows a new one on FB today, Galanthus plicatus ‘Golden Tears’
"A narrow-flowered yellow pterugiform with a very large mark and bright yellow ovary"

Very nice !

Thank You Irm - it would have been a surprise if Joe would have dropped that line! ´Golden Tears´ would certainly be welcome to brighten up my garden with a dull and stormy weather like this.

Two seedlings I´ll keep, though they cannot compete with ´Golden Tears´, of course.

Kurz zu später Stunde an Alle :
 
Gute Nachricht: Das Ordnungsamt hat mitgeteilt, dass die Veranstaltung genehmigt wird (mit Auflagen aber immerhin).
 
Es kann also weiter geplant werden und wir gehen davon aus, dass wir eine schöne und erfolgreiche Veranstaltung haben werden. Und: Es soll frostfrei bleiben.

Briefly at a late hour to all :
 
Good news: The Office of Public Order has informed us that the event will be approved (with conditions, but still).
 
So we can continue planning and we expect to have a nice and successful event. And: It should stay frost-free.

I am enjoying looking through everyone's lovely pictures! I have some Galanthus blooming and some seedlings from crosses that I made are leafing out nicely.

I notice that many of you here have experience crossing Galanthus and I wonder if anyone who has sown self-pollinated G. nivalis scharlockii seeds has got the scharlockii features in the first generation. I was lucky to receive these seeds several years ago and the first generation of flowers turned out looking like regular G. nivalis. So I am assuming I need to sow the seeds from these first generation plants and see how the second generation will turn out. I was curious if somebody had experience they might be willing to share...

I've never seen anything quite like this but it looks unpleasant.  If you have enough space to quarantine these bulbs I would do so.  If not I would dispose of them as 'Kite' is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace.   
Almost in Scotland.

Thank you Alan. I'll dig them up!

I agree, isolate them. Yet, looks to me like slugs are to blame for a good portion of the damage. We've had quite a few unusually warm nights this season in Continental Europe...
