Very nice! It looks like the Galanthus are in their prime at your place! It's getting to the end of Galanthus season where I am and only a few late ones have started to flower now.

Ten days forward and my snowdrops mostly still sit in the snow. We had a really cold week in Estonia and even day temperatures stayed below zero, though if it was mostly sunny. It is a very rough time for snowdrops, like a freezing desert. I did a bit of covering for the most advanced ones and hope I had avoided serious damage.

Some pics from today.

I like Augustus… … BUT I have repeatedly had virus troubles break out near it!

SO: After much agonizing, I scrapped all my Augustus and bought a few ‘Virus free Augustus’ to start again.

This year, the so called ‘Virus free Augustus’ is displaying exactly the same worrying symptoms which got my original stock of Augustus binned!!!!

Whilst on the subject of Augustus, I’ve never seen a pod on it. But it suddenly occurred to me that that doesn’t automatically mean the pollen is sterile. So I transferred a bit across to another plant and I now have one pod fattening. Of course it may be that an insect beat me to that flower and Augustus isn’t the father! Has anyone else tried using Augustus as a pollen donor?

Villu, your 'Big Boy' has increased very well! It clearly likes your garden. Here it is increasing much slower, but it still increasing. A friend of mine had it also some years ago and lost it, so I've been happy that mine is alive. :)

Tim, it is good to know about 'Augustus' that even virus free ones can be virused. Lucky I don't have it.

Maggi and Ian, thank you for bringing spring views to all of us. All the flowering snowdrops and all other plants, and everything coming up, what can be better!

Indeed, though in my garden only the very last snowdrops are in flower now. This is one of my favourites  as it has very dainty marks.



To my surprise, the long-sought-after ´Squire Burroughs´was available in Knechtsteden.  :)

Mariette, the picture of the one with dainty marks is so beautiful, and that snowdrop looks very nice.

Just curious, on some posts I see no pictures,  they are blank boxes?

Not sure which posts you refer to - there were some a little while ago, which were only showing for some viewers - might it have been those? They were by starking007 in the Hepatica 2022 thread.   Nothing we can do to show those I'm afraid.

Maggi, took some screen caps.  Can you delete the pictures/post when you get a chance, thanks.

Guff, those photos are showing perfectly here.

Must be the browser, pictures don't show up with Google Chrome, but do with Firefox for me.
