Hi John, Thanks for posting your pictures... I particularly appreciate the comments.. Please could I trouble you to do a few measurements on 'Gerard Parker', as I understand it might be a ''giant'' contender!

Hi Tim

I have been fortunate to 'wangle' an early finish again today and have had time in the garden in daylight again - happy days.  I've never measured the snowdrops before - but have now just been out with the tape measure (not sure what the neighbours thought! ) and took pics of any that looked "bigger" - not sure how scientific this was - and I do know that the petals enlarge are they age so the measurements will be different in a few weeks.

But shall now add a few pics to your other thread.   :)

Maybe it is lost by the time the flowers open. Can you check the new flowers when they drop?

I am officially pastel shade colour blind, but the new bud does seem to have a green hue.

A very unusual-looking snowdrop that I missed when it was reported here http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=1315.msg264286#msg264286 .  If I did not know better, I would think those marks on the outer petals had been faked.
