MINIATURE DAFFODILS - SNOWDROPS - HEPATICAS
Last updated - 19.00 5 February 2024
No plants available at present - next list due June
Dryad Nursery is a small mail-order-only nursery run by me, Anne Wright, based in Tockwith, North Yorkshire.
I have been growing and breeding miniature narcissi, snowdrops, and hepaticas for over 30 years, and am proud to have been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's highest honour for my breeding work - the Reginald Cory Cup, in 2023. Many of our Dryad cultivars have also been given awards by the RHS.
The nursery was set up originally simply as a way of disposing of excess bulbs from my hobby, and still has this function, but I also now propagate the plants especially for the list. Everything is on a small scale though – it has to fit into my back-garden!
