How could you fail to include a delightful flower with the common name 'Glory-of-the-snow' into your very early spring garden? Chionodoxa luciliae, with its beautiful star-shaped flowers that are each little more than just over an inch (3cm) wide, is one of the first bulbs to mark the coming of spring, sometimes not even waiting to flower for all the snow to have melted. Hailing from the mountainsides of west Turkey, these bright little blooms are like little beacons of lavender blue, pink or pure white lit by yellow stamens on a white centre. Let Chionodoxa luciliae naturalize in your garden at the feet of tulips or daffodils to add a soft touch of glory to your garden.

At a young age, Hein Huijg bought 10 kilos of tulip bulbs for 850 Dutch guilders from his savings. After one year, he was able to triple the yield and he kept 20 kilos of his harvest. Hein invested his profit in other tulip bulbs. This was the start of the bulb company 'Huijg Breezand' in Breezand, The Netherlands. Around the end of the eighties, John and Raymond Huijg (see photo) became partners. The company has grown to over 45 hectares of flower bulbs nowadays!
