My posh snowdrops opened out in the sun today. I bought one bulb of Wendy's Gold from the RHS garden at Wisley a few years ago. The delightful plant has obligingly, if slowly, increased every season since. This year I have a group of four flowers all showing the same beautiful golden markings.
Wendy's Gold was first found by Bill Clark on the site of an Iron-age fort. It was brought into cultivation by Joe Sharman, another galanthophile and a nursery owner. He named the plant for Bill's wife.
