Buy Galanthus 'S. Arnott' snowdrop bulbs: Larger than your average snowdrop

  • Position: cool, partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, moist but well-drained alkaline to neutral soil. Snowdrops dislike acid soils.
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February to March
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 5/6

    A rare, relatively large and vigorous form, named after Samuel Arnott (born in Dumfries in 1852) who was a keen gardener and snowdrop aficionado. He first discovered this in his garden and later introduced it into cultivation. Like a pumped-up version of the common snowdrop, this super-sized version has deliciously honey-scented flowers.

  • Garden care: Plants will seed readily, but tend to hybridise. Lift and divide overly large clumps while they are 'in the green' every 2-3 years after flowering from March to May. Replant immediately and water in well.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
