Galanthus 'Sibbertoft Magnet'



11th February 2011


A tall elegant plant, one of the Magnet-a-likes, with a very long pedicel that allows the flower to dangle.
People talk about grasses introducing 'movement' to a garden. It would be more satisfying to get a dog surely? (Sorry, wrong sort of movement). This doesn't so much move as twitch nervously on the end of a string. Think electrocution rather than ballet.
Please don't misunderstand me, it is a lovely plant but people must have a curious idea about its preferred growing medium if they surround it with this much tosh.
