What they say...

So at Marchants, the nursery drifts almost imperceptibly into Gough's rich, dramatic sweeps of herbaceous planting: sanguisorbas, daylilies, masses of grasses, achilleas, dark agapanthus etc.

Marchants Snowdrops

Graham's Blog

Well, well, Snowdrops do catch us out. They seem to be racing ahead as I write and have done all week with the mild weather. I settled down at the computer an hour ago to work at our Snowdrop Sale only to discover we will be holding it at virtually the same time as last year. The date we are calling is Saturday 25th January 2020 with the usual times of 10.00am till 4.00pm. Do try to pop it in your diary and accept my profuse apologies for the notice being so late. And remember: snowdrops are much more important than Weddings, Christenings and Funerals (unless it's your own) so we'll hope to see you next week!

As usual we have much to tempt you including some new G. nivalis scharlokii forms which I have patiently been building up for 6 years. I believe this may be the first time they have been offered but the snowdrop world moves in a clandestine way so I may be forced to eat my words.

Our prices are based on the fact that not everyone can afford the heady prices which many of the newer snowdrops command. I have no problem at all with these prices: rare plants fetch rare prices, but I am quite happy to look and gain pleasure from seeing these snowdrops in someone else's garden and it cuts down on visits to the Bank Manager. Our own collection boasts of, for the most part, affordable snowdrops which have given me immense pleasure over the years. They also come with a thorough recommendation. With nearly 50 varieties to choose from, let us hope you can find a new Snowdrop or two for your own garden.

If you would like a Snowdrop list prior to the sale please follow the request on this website. Many thanks.
