Wow, Pauli.  Fantastic clump.   8)

I have struggled for many years growing R. O. in my open ground.

I think I spot a plastic sheet behind in your photograph - can I ask if these are grown undercover?

John,
thanks for your kind comment.
Yes, they are in a frame,which is usually used to force vegetables here. The frame is closed from June to Mid-September and hot and bone dry.  Following Ian Young recommendations in his bulb logs, I fed them more the last years and growth as well as flower power improved. I find them easy also in the open, but outside they do not multiply at the same speed and flowers are often damaged by bad weather.

Does anyone know anything about Galanthus 'Autumn Beauty'? It was bought from the Wisley plant centre and is in flower now. It's not mine unfortunately!

Anne it's supposed to be a hybrid with reginae-olgae and elwesii but I think it's an early elwesii

The first three flower buds on corcyrensis x reginae-olgae 'Cambridge' h.p.   Seed was sown 9 April 2009  and sprouted late autumn of the same year.  Will shoot when open if they're worthwhile.

Yup. I have it in inventory as "Galanthus corcyrensis (reginae-olgae spp.)" so I don't mix it up with another r-o from the same collector.

A bit of a taste of winter here today, brilliant sunshine and +4c.

Warren - It's by no means the norm here, I have no idea why they have flowered so quickly.  I'll check the records again and report back if I read or wrote that label incorrectly.
