Product Description

Galanthus nivalis the common snowdrop  is one of the first flowers to poke its head above ground in winter through to early spring. These hardy dwarf perennials, with delicately fragrant, nodding, snow-white blooms bursting open from narrow, dark grey-green stems, are one of the most wonderful sights in the winter months.

They love the dappled shade under trees and look even better when planted in drifts through grass, where they will naturalise easily and increase in number year after year. Alternatively, plant in groups in the fronts of borders and beds, or underplant amongst roses and shrubs. At a time when little else is in flower, they also make an attractive feature in rock gardens and pots.

An eternal favourite and fully deserving of its RHS Award of Garden Merit, this versatile snowdrop is suitable for any size of garden and will thrive in exposed or sheltered positions.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs for planting in the autumn, they will flower from January to March the following year, and your displays will get better every year!

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant as soon as possible, 10cm deep in fertile, moist but well-drained soil that will not dry out in summer.
  • Snowdrops thrive in partial shade, either in an exposed or sheltered position.
  • Plant in groups or naturalistic drifts.

 

Care Guide

  • Where bulbs are planted in grass, do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died back, a few weeks after flowering.
  • If dividing to split large clumps, lift while the leaves are still green and break into smaller clumps for replanting.
