Dryad Nursery Snowdrops and Narcissus Ebay Listing 2019
« on: December 31, 2018, 03:22:42 PM »
This coming year will be the fifth year since I launched the Dryad Gold Series with:
Dryad Gold Sovereign
631173-0631175-1
Dryad Gold Bullion
631177-2
Dryad Gold Medal
631179-3
which have proven to be vigorous and beautiful garden plants.
As a result and to celebrate their success, I will be offering a few more, ALL of which will be multi-nosed bulbs, so those that wish to add these three specials can look forward to an early clump!
MINIONS! I need more minions!

631191-0I will also be offering small numbers of two brand new Dryad Golds -
Dryad Gold Charm and, hopefully, Dryad Gold Ingot, both of which cover the distinctive diminutive segment of the snowdrop market and again, in line with my normal strategy, multi-nosed bulbs where possible.
Dryad Gold Ingot
631181-1
Gold Charm
631191-2
There will also be a limited number of:
Dryad Gold Nugget,
631185-3
 Dryad Gold Ribbon
631187-4
and Dryad Gold Star, again all multi-nosed.
631189-5
I will list these with a number of other rare cultivars, as I normally do.
Thank you for all your support in 2018, I look forward to supplying you great bulbs again in 2019!
Expect another major announcement soon!

Ooh!  A  bit of Hogmanay  excitement !  Thanks, Anne. I have to admit to a soft spot for your  Dryad  Gold series which has more than a little to do with the  quality of the  plants.  Bulbs from you and Ian Christie do the best for me here - and I know they do even better for others, which is saying something! Happy Days!

I am excited to announce that we will shortly be offering a very small number of the new Dryad Nursery 'Myths and Legends' series based around major characters from Mythology. These include:
Dryad Artemis is a beautiful and elegant lady with neat and graceful flowers and an upright habit, much admired. It is a mid-height to tall snowdrop growing to about 20-30cm high under glass, probably shorter in the open.  It is vigorous and increases well. Artemis was the goddess of chastity and the hunt, and the sleek shape of the plant and purity of the crisp markings of the flower is a tribute to those qualities, while the inner mark is reminiscent of an ancient Greek bow. The icing on the cake is the delicious scent. 
631439-0
Dryad Venus has curvaceous, shapely flowers with a flirty frill around the outer segments on mature flowers. The mark on the outer segments is shaped like an inverted heart with an inner segment mark of a deeper green 'X' or kiss. With such a ravishing, sensuous shape and markings the only fitting name was Venus, as the Goddess of Love and Beauty. It is a mid-height snowdrop growing to about 20cm high under glass, probably shorter in the open. To add to all this, not only is it scented, but it probably carries yellow genes having Wendy's Gold and Corrin as parents, so will be useful in breeding programmes for yellow poculiforms.
631443-1
Dryad Demeter: has solid virescent characteristics, more oil paint than watercolour! Demeter is the Greek goddess of agriculture and vegetation (also known as Anesidora, sending gifts up from the earth). In the ancient Greek religion of  Hellenismos she is associated with the colour green. I believe this snowdrop redefines the notion of virescent. It is a short to mid-height snowdrop growing to about 16cm high under glass, probably shorter in the open.
631441-2
 A very small number of these will be available in the green early in the new year!

There are some superb cultivars on offer here! Top quality and rapid growers, particularly as most are multi-nosed to start with!

Eilys Elizabeth Hartley is a gorgeous snowdrop and the charitable contribution makes it even more appealing!

If you are after the best yellows, look no further.

Anne Wright's latest Ebay listing has just gone live, more great yellows with the first offering of:

"DRYAD GOLD CHARM: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264116787502
One of the more diminutive Dryad Golds, but with one of the longest flowers - newly opening flowers are shaped like large, long teardrops. This dwarf-growing variety is especially suitable for pots and containers, although equally happy in the garden. Slightly larger in all its parts than Gold Star.
Flowering height 10cm. Scapes very upright, flower length including ovary 40mm."

Good hunting!

In our listings tonight, as well as our other Dryad Gold favourites, we are excited to be able to offer the first release of a new baby - Dryad Gold Charm - in very limited numbers.
 
DRYAD GOLD CHARM: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264116787502
One of the more diminutive Dryad Golds, but with one of the longest flowers - newly opening flowers are shaped like large, long teardrops. This dwarf-growing variety is especially suitable for pots and containers, although equally happy in the garden. Slightly larger in all its parts than Gold Star.
Flowering height 10cm. Scapes very upright, flower length including ovary 40mm.
 631722-0

DRYAD GOLD RIBBON: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264116770807
Similar in height to Dryad Gold Sovereign, though a little later in flower and with a larger yellow inverted heart on the inner segments, the flower is also more rounded. It has the largest inner mark of all the Dryad Gold group. It has always been singled out by visitors because of its prolific flowering and very upright habit.
631724-1

GALANTHUS CORRIN: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264116791825
Bred by Rannveig Wallis, this is a superb neat inverse poculiform with plump flowers bearing a double mark on the outer segments. Rarely offered.
Flowering height 15cm. Outer segments with strong green mark towards the end, and a small pale green mark at the base. Inner segment mark deep green and reaching to the base. I seem to have been feeling very generous when I potted these as there seem to be 2 bulbs in the pot!
631726-2

DRYAD GOLD SOVEREIGN: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264116766088
Dryad Gold Sovereign needs no introduction - quite simply my favourite of all the snowdrops I grow - early, elegant, robust, vigorous and increasing healthily - and yellow as well!

DRYAD GOLD MEDAL: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264116767565
Dryad Gold Medal is an ideal yellow to carry on the season from Gold Sovereign, flowering later, and with rounder and fuller flowers, this cultivar shares the same vigorous habit, is quick to increase and very free flowering.
