What they say...

If you put a date in your diary for a visit to Marchants, do empty the boot of your car. I hadn't planned to buy any plants but left with a garden full.

Marchants Snowdrops

For details of our annual sale, see Events page


Graham's Blog

The Snowdrops have continued apace and today (4th January) with the sun shining many of the clumps in the garden are 'on song'. One of these is Galanthus elwesii 'Don Armstrong' ( a poculifrorm) which was brought back from Vancouver by us where it arose. Last year for some strange reason better known to itself its flowers seemed incapable of breaking from their spathes giving the plant a forlorn, pinched look. Thankfully, the plant seems once again to be in good health and I have only just now been admiring our healthy clump in full swing in the garden.

The real purpose of this blog is to inform you of our Snowdrop sale. As usual this is to be held in the Potting Palace here at Marchants. Notice is rather short for this event for which I must apologise. The dates are:

Saturday 11th February and Sunday 12th February - 10.00am until 4.00pm (both days)

If time allows we will attempt to do a mail out for those of you on our Snowdrop mailing list next tuesday and this will include our Snowdrop list. If you wish to have more time to think then use the Snowdrop List request on this site and I will get one to you as soon as I can.

Hoping you can make it - we will have about 40 different named Snowdrops for sale!
