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 in large informal areas of grass. Snowdrops in the green are ideal for spring planting. For autumn planting choose Snowdrop bulbs. Height: 10cm (4"). Only cultivated stock used.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten. Snowdrops in the green should be planted in February and March at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Choose a position in dappled shade in reliably moist, well drained soil. Snowdrops prefer a soil rich in organic matter so add some well rotted manure or compost to the soil. Carefully separate the individual bulbs and space them randomly throughout the planting area at a distance of 10cm apart. Plant them as close to their original soil depth as possible, or at a depth of 5cm (2"). The original soil depth can be identified on the leaf stems where the colour changes from white to green. Water regularly until bulbs are fully established.
Snowdrops particularly dislike dry soil in summer so water regularly during the growing season until bulbs are fully established. When growing snowdrops, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally. Avoid mowing areas of grass where bulbs are naturalised until their foliage has completely died back.
