The second week of March and we still have a few snowdrops. Trym has been superb. It has spread of its own accord in a very gentle way so it now after six years forms a beautiful self contained colony. It is a charming snowdrop with its green markings on the outer petals which turn out slightly at their tips giving them a rather oriental look. Another late flowering snowdrop here is E.A. Bowles one of several named after that great plantsman. It is entirely white with large goblet shaped petals making it stand out from a distance. I have only had it for a year and it has done well forming a nice clump. We have had snowdrops flowering in the garden since early December but now they are coming to an end and we will have to turn our attention to the many other early spring plants which are coming into flower.
