Snowdrops

Having visited some beautiful winter gardens recently with their carpets of snowdrops, I have snowdrop envy. I’m on a mission to spread snowdrops around this garden! We seem to have a few clumps of G. Elwesii, so they are getting moved around every spare gardening minute. What I really covet is Galanthus S. Arnott- I would love sheets of S. Arnott in the garden smelling of honey- my one little bulb has an awful lot of clumping up to do before that happens!
