  • Position:partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture-retentive soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: January and February
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Snowdrop bulbs bought in the autumn tend to get dehydrated and this can lead to disappointing results. This is why planting bulbs 'in the green' is becoming more and more popular. Snowdrops are perfect for naturalising in grass and they have gorgeous, honey-scented flowers. Plant them in well-drained, moisture-retentive soil.

    Please note the snowdrops have finsihed flowering.

  • Garden care: Plant in naturalistic drifts when they arrive. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died back. Divide large colonies immediately after flowering while the leaves are still green.

These snowdrops were for planting in woodland in our local park and they were fantastic. Looking forward to seeing them come up soon.

I have recently moved house and have inherited a grassy area in the garden which has a profusion of different varieties of galanthus (lucky me). I would like to get rid of the grass but not the snowdrops. Can you advise - I'm thinking of gravel or bark or similar. Many thanks

Judy

Hello there Unfortunately I don't think gravel or bark will be suitable. Snowdrop bulbs don't like to dry out and I think if you take up the grass you are changing the growing environment too much. Hope this helps

When is the best time to divide my snowdrops? Thanks

Mark

Hello, The best time to lift and divide large clumps is early spring - just after they have finished flowering, but before the leaves die back.

Native plants for a grave..... Hi, I'm looking for some UK native plants for my friends grave. It's a woodland cemetery, hence the native. Preferably something that won't spiral out of control without excessive upkeep. What can you suggest? Thanks, Jo

Jo

Hello Jo, There are a couple of things that I think would be lovely - here are some of the best. Hyacinthoides non-scripta (bluebell) Anemone nemorosa (wood anemone) Galium odoratum (sweet woodruff) Digitalis purpurea (foxglove) Galanthus nivalis (snowdrop) Polypodium vulgare (common polypody) I hope this gives you a few ideas, Helen Plant Doctor
