Snowdrop Mania: a BBC Radio 4 programme on snowdrops
A nice selection of Galanthus nivalis
A BBC Radio 4 programme produced and first broadcast last year, entitled 'Snowdrop Mania', with well-known enthusiasts speaking to the presenter at the Galanthus Gala last year, was re-broadcast yesterday. It can be heard on http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b00r33y5/Snowdrop_Mania - hopefully all over the world.
A personal view of the world of horticulture and plants by a gardening botanist and author, living in Settrington, North Yorkshire, and working as Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum, a partnership between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Castle Howard.
