Many thanks to our valuable customers for the orders, placed during the snowdrop season 2016  /2017. An update of the list will be made and published from early November 2017 when orders can be placed again.
It is with pleasure to re-enter in the Web world again after the last website has been hacked last may with the result to lose all data on the side.
It has taking lots of work to get the new site re-organized , but we have taking the opportunity to overhaul the outlay with a total new views on the snowdrops world here in Ballymackey.
Please note as before ,the list is made up off the snowdrops I grow here at home . Some are available now , others need time to grow and develop before the will be put for sale.
The idea is to let snowdrops enthusiasts know what is growing here , and hopefully become available in the near future . All my snowdrops are grown in the garden ,and are naturally increased , I don’t do twin scaling or grow from seed .
I will add more varieties and edit more on the list .
I will take the opportunity to thank all my customers for the trust the have shown true the years .

How I discovered Snowdrops

Remembering as a child living in Belgium when the winters were still cold and usual the soil was covered with a blanket of snow, my parents had a small garden where they grow some flowers. I remember seeing some clumps of ordinary snowdrops Nivalis standing heads above the snow and enduring the cold air, and those images always remained with me through my life.

Much later in life, a neighbour introduced me to her garden, where the driveway to the house was a carpet of snowdrops. Every spring the little white caps are standing above the green lawn for weeks without failing. It was the lady of the house who got me interested in getting some snowdrops under-planted with my then collection of Helleborus, and they really thrived, complimenting the different colours of the lenten-roses with their elegant white.

Thus began my journey to become a snowdrop collector.  A few visits to Belgium friends, brought me some of my first cultivars and needless to say, getting hooked was unavoidable, with the result of ending up with around 200 different cultivars and growing.

From the first ordinary Galanthus Nivalis to the current collection, they flower through the Autumn and Winter months, some as early as October through to April, which give lots of interest during the otherwise long winter time and reason enough tho get active outside during that time.

I am fortunate to have  soil, where the snowdrops thrive very well and are happy to flourish on there own.I don’t like to disturb them, when in a dormant state and only make divisions for replanting or sale during early Spring, usual March to April depending on the seasonal weather conditions.

About Me

My name is Guy de Shryver and I have been passionate about Galanthus and Hellebores since my youth in Belgium. I now grow these wonderful plants in Ireland.
