Val Bourne on yellow drops - and others too :
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/how-to-grow/hot-trail-elusive-gold-snowdrops/


For those interested in Midas there is now an update from Avon!

"Galanthus Midas: Val Bourne's article in the Gardening section of the Saturday Telegraph of 28th January suggests that we are now at the point of selling bulbs of this plant. In fact they need a little longer to grow and are due to be made available for sale as dormant bulbs in the summer 2017. There will not be quite as many available as suggested if one follows the numbers in the article too literally and their price has yet to be fixed, that will depend on how many are harvested and are then judged to be of flowering size."  :)

If ´Blonde Inge´ist the prototype of the GRYMs, ´Wolfgang´s Gold´may be the prototype of the YGRMs?

so it is Mariette,
but I like to prefer the name of the first cultivar with these said properties. So I use MERLIN,ROBIN HOOD, VIRESCENS, BLONDE INGE ...

Goood to see WOLFGANGS GOLD does it very well in your hands ...

Nice to see 'Wolfgang's Gold' it's not one I have seen and you are absolutely right Mariette YGRM indeed ;) The long yellow receptacle is super.

Hagen you are well ahead of me, 'Mother Goose' is barely through the ground and 'Das Gelbe vom ei' much the same.

All are in a greenhouse, so it is easy to be the first ...

Does 'Bloomer' count?  ( http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=14000.msg349961#msg349961 )

I should think it does as one of the 'Gold Group' which is where I think the term is too broad!  I'll add it Maggi.  Fancy you knowing that ;)

Good thinking Anne, Ido like a good acronym.  They are lovely.
