February 2019 saw us at Hatherleigh Community Centre in Devon for the talks and sales. Paul Smyth's talk, The Making and Breaking of a Galanthophile covered his work with growing and propagating snowdrops including techniques on twin-scaling. Jim Almond's, The Shropshire Snowdrop Connection delved into the cultivars and galanthophiles associated with Shropshire.
The garden visit in the afternoon was to Higher Cherubeer. The owners Jo and Tom Hynes hold a National Cyclamen
Collection aswell as an extensive collection of over 200 varieties of snowdrops.
For our event in 2020 we are travelling north to Yorkshire to give our members in other areas of the country a chance to join our events. This promises to be a really special day - keep watching this page for further details later in the year. The date will be 22nd February so please put it in your diary!
Tickets and information will be in the newsletter but if anyone from The C.G.S. who is not a member of The Snowdrop Group wishes to attend they are able to do so at guest prices. See above for the contact details of the organisors who will be able to give full details.
