hi John

I am now only buying snowdrops that are distinctive by their flowering time
or their shape and colour. It is very true that many are too similar. There
are about 6 snowdrops which are now thought to be the same snowdrop. This
was discussed at last years 10 yearly conference. I also agree that if a
pile of snowdrops are placed in front of a grower he/she wont be able to
name them.

For those who are wondering what all the fuss is about have a look at which is my web site. I'm
also writing an article for the next magazine. It will have many fine
