Its that time of the year in NZ, its Galanthus time. I have had a love for these plants since i was a teenager. I brought a few at great cost from a small Nursery in the South Island. Living in Napier at that time, I had a great flowering the first year, and from then on they slowly withered away to nothing. To high temps and not cold enough in the winters for them.
Three years ago we moved down to the lower North Island. A little township, called Norsewood. We are about 1 kilometre from the Ruahine Range’s . Snow and frosts in the winter. So i tried again. 3 years later and im having good luck with my bulbs. I grow them in contaners, until we get the areas to plant them in the ground. The following Photos are of my plants this year.
