Growing Snowdrops (Galanthus Bulbs)

Better known as the very popular snowdrop, galanthus look better planted in groups or drifts rather than in straight rows. For the best results the bulbs should be planted from September to November not less than 4 in. deep, preferably in a well-drained position where they can be left to become established.

Galanthus nivalis is the well-known single snowdrop which is often used for naturalising in grass and shrubberies. The blooms which appear over a long period from January to March have a green mark on the petal edges. The double snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis flore-pleno, has a number of very large named varieties.
