Several years ago, I wrote to someone in the US who, as it turned out, only 
sold snowdrops "in the green". For this reason, they couldn't ship to Oregon. I 
have always wondered where the idea that snowdrops could only be transplanted 
"green" came from. Maybe it is true for certain species, but in reality I have 
never known any that would not stand being shipped dry, dormant, and free of 
soil. Maybe there are some species that ~are fussy this way?

Anyway, thanks to both of you for the pointer. 

Cheers, Louise
