Greetings all, An exceptionally pleasant March has melted the snow in my fields weeks earlier than normal. First bloom for me is always about tax day (April 15 for our overseas friends), but today an old miniature selection from N. asturiensis named Navarre was open. This was a bulb that came circuitously via famed English Galanthus expert Richard Nutt. Bright yellow, very tiny, and very exciting. Bagatelle (stock from J. Driver) will be the next mini trumpet to bloom. Wee Bee (stock from the RHS) will be 3-4 days later. Small Talk (from Elise Havens) will be last. They really aren’t all the same cultivar.
