    Cuttings I should think CG but I have no experience of these. My soil is about as alkaline as soil gets

  • Not sure as they haven't flowered yet, the leaves have an almost white stripe down the centre of them

    Definitely a Snowdrop of sorts, but there are a lot of varieties and even a few species. Some of the G. nivalis types have a striped leaf, as do G. ewersii forms. Trouble is you need to see how the leaf comes out of the bulb, how it folds and then the flower and the markings to even try to id Snowdrops.

  • The Pieris  For cuttings take a piece without flowers usually at the end of spring and put them round the  the edge of a pot, in a peat mix (acid soil) i put quite a few in and i tuck the pots away somewhere in the garden and leave for a  year some take some don't. also i cut the flowers of in early spring the new growth is pink and very pretty. I hope this helps.

    There are about 20 species of Galanthus. These have a fair number of sub-species and there are some wild occurrences of hybrids between species.

    I found 450 named varieties of these before I got fed up counting.

  • Thanks everyone very helpful, as soon as the flowers open I'll post another picture
