Spindlestone Surprise one of the better forms of yellow snowdrop

The picture provides quite a good view of what is growing in these troughs/containers ,as the snowdrops go over they will be replaced with other bulbs and plants some of which are already sending up buds they include Crocus, Dwarf Trillium,Cyclamen,Dwarf Erythroniums,Hepaticas ,Soldanelles, are some that come to mind,
most seem to co exist similar to how they might in the wild a lot self sowing seed that germinates where they fall,there are nine troughs in total taking up one side of this glass house

That is so attractive. I have G. Spindlestone Surprise and do agree that it seems to thrive out in my garden.

Amy for me at least the yellow's are not as strong growing,I have one yellow form that is being overpowered by a green & white that will have to be moved when they finish flowering otherwise it may not be there next year
