What's Looking Good

Christmas message

by | Dec 18, 2023 | Uncategorized

When November is at its gloomiest the first shoots of Galanthus Three Ships can be seen pushing towards the light. Now December is as grey and depressing as its predecessor but delightful and reliable as ever this wonderful snowdrop is now fully in flower and it only takes a few moments of sunshine for the petals to glisten and shine. A message of hope in the last few days before Christmas as the name suggests.

There are two other early snowdrops in flower in the garden now: Donald Sims, very neatly marked, and Peter Gatehouse. Both are good elegant plants but Three Ships is far superior in character and charisma and for me marks the true beginning of the snowdrop season.
