‘Diggory’ is a favourite snowdrop for many people. The seersucker, textured petals are attractive enough but the puffed out and round shape makes for a snowdrop that is distinctive to say the least. I have read that when one asks a child which snowdrop they like they will invariably pick ‘Diggory’. (My seven year old grandson was asked that very question this Saturday. He deliberated, cogitated, touched them and then said, “The blue pot”.) Whatever, ‘Diggory’ is distinctive when many other snowdrops are not which counts for much in my eyes. It has increased moderately well in three years, forming a small clump but only two blooms. I shall have to get the feeding correct this year.
