The Galanthophiles : 160 Years of Snowdrop Devotees Hardback
THE GALANTHOPHILES is the first book to focus on the lives of snowdrop devotees during the years 1854 to 2014 when snowdrops came of horticultural age.
It tells the stories of the most important individuals whose fascination with every aspect of the genus Galanthus ensured the survival of so many of the snowdrops we grow today.
The stories are interwoven with accounts of the introduction of new snowdrop species and new snowdrop variants and provide a history of Galanthus cultivation in Britain.
