 SNOWDROP DAY ‘SATURDAY 19TH JANUARY 2019’
 Premier event at Harvey's Garden Plants, great choice and expert advice!


Oh dear, Roger Harvey and Ben Potterton (with Joe Sharman) are once again going head-to-head with rival events on the same day, at much the same time and in much the same part of the country.  It's a re-run of last year's clash, unfortunately.

Some changes to the Snowdrop Day at Earsham Wetland Centre next Saturday (19th). Lecture now  by Belgian enthusiast Johan Mens at 11am. Snowdrops Sales start at 10am, sellers include: Monksilver, Brian Ellis, Gert-Jan van der Kolk ...Entry to the Sale (and now Lecture !) is free.

To me it just looks like a totally different show.  And unfortunately it also clashes with probably the busiest weekend of the English "Snowdrop Season" with the Shaftesbury Snowdrop Day taking place on the 9th followed by at least two other snowdrop events on 10th February.   
Almost in Scotland.

The Nettetaler Schneeglöckchentage will continue in Knechtsteden 16th and 17th February 2019.

The Nettetaler Schneeglöckchentage is oldest event of this kind in Germany. The event, which was founded by Marlu and Günter Waldorf in the district of Nettetaler Oirlich, has led many enthusiasts of these first messengers of spring to the Lower Rhine every year since 2006. From far and near, the "Galanthophiles" made a pilgrimage to see the offer of snowdrop growers from all over Europe and to visit the extensive collection of varieties in the garden of the Waldorfs.

After the death of Günter Waldorf, the event was relocated by his wife and several colleagues for a few years to nearby Hinsbeck, where a continuation was no longer possible for organizational reasons. So now the event will take place  at
Knechtsteden, where all the previous  sellers and so on will appear. There will be an emphasis on galanthus, but also  leucojum, hepatica and other  Winter/ early Spring flowers.

I very much enjoyed meeting people on Saturday at Earsham, there were some wonderful new varieties on sale from Joe Sharman, Gert Jan van der Kolk and Ramon (of Green Tear fame) as well as the first time of offering for sale of some of the snowdrops from Johan Mens (I was delighted to get the original 'Belles Etoiles' rather than 'Belles Etoiles group' as well as 'Langue Wapper' and a couple of the extraordinary scharlockii spiders).  For those that travelled from Wales, Nottingham and other far flung places Johan gave an excellent talk on the Belgian scharlockii populations and variation in Leucojum and, of course, as has been mentioned before it was not only free but very well attended as we were in a larger room than last year and it was full to bursting.  Of course for those that travelled a great distance they had the added bonus of travelling just 32 miles to the sale at Harvey's if they had not spent up!

Hagen Engelmann comes with some of his snowdrop-vatieties and answers questions of the visitors.
On both days a bus goes 10.15 and 13.15 around Torgau to show the natural springbulb - places!
In Sunday the pubs and shops of Torgau organisate a familyfriendly "Frühlingsfest" with many acitivities

The Luisenpark Snowdrop Days at Mannheim are  becoming a fixture in the diary of Galanthophiles. 

Anne Repnow announces that the next snowdrops days in the Luisenpark will take place on 23rd  and 24th February 2019!

On Saturday, Joe Sharman will talk about " Galanthus reginae-olgae Autumn blooming snowdrops."

On Sunday, Jürgen Peters will talk about " the world of hepatica" -  He will also bring a small "Hepatica Landscape" that will show the magic of these little jewels.

More info will be available here in due course : https://www.luisenpark.de/
For anyone wondering if a trip to Mannheim is  a good idea -  have a look at this video from last year's event at  Luisenpark - it looks pretty  wonderful to me!
