Woodland Flower Bulbs


Woodland flower bulbs are happy growing in partial or dappled shade – often emerging in the spring before the leaves have appeared on the trees. Ideal for naturalising in woodland gardens, rockeries and informal areas of grass, many of these woodland flowers are native to the UK. All of our woodland bulbs represent excellent value for money and will naturally multiply over the years. For help planting bulbs see our guide to planting bulbs and view our informative video.

Single Snowdrops in the Green + Double Snowdrops FREE

Galanthus nivalis

Drifts of single flowered snowdrops really lift the spirits on cold winter days! These understated beauties love to nestle in dappled shade at the base of trees, or for a particularly bold impact, try naturalising them an alpine garden or in large informal areas of grass. Why not try them in window boxes and containers as part of a mixed planting scheme. Versatile and vigorous, they will quickly multiply to create a carpet of honey scented single and double-flowered blooms.

Snowdrops in the green are ideal for spring planting as unlike the notoriously difficult to grow dry bulbs in the autumn, these are guaranteed to flower! Growing 'in the green' means planting them when they are still in leaf and is the best way to establish snowdrops. Height: 10cm (4"). Bulb size: 4/5cm. Only cultivated stock used.
