More than 700 pound sterling paid for Galanthus

Thompson & Morgan has acquired snowdrop Galanthus woronowii ‘Elizabeth Harrison’ for £725. It is golden with a yellow ovary and yellow markings on the petals. More than thirty other bidders attempted to buy it. Last year this UK mail order plant and seed company Thompson & Morgan sold more than one million snowdrops. This production of the new cultivar will speeded up by investing in micropropagation. It still will take years before ‘Elizabeth Harrison’ is available for the trade.
