Buy Leucojum aestivum summer snowflake bulbs: Sprays of green-tipped, white bell-shaped flowers

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: rich, reliably moist soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 8/10

    This tough and easy to grow perennial looks great when allowed to naturalise throughout mixed borders, but as it loves a touch of moisture, it also does well when planted in drifts around the upper edges of a pond. The bell-shaped flowers appear in spring, held in small clusters at the tips of the upright stems - and they look a little like giant-sized snowdrops. Get close to them though and you may detect a delicate chocolate-like perfume.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in autumn 10cm deep and 8-10cm apart. Allow the plant to die back completely before clearing away the foliage.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
