For many gardeners snowdrops herald the end of winter. They are extraordinarily hardy and can be depended on to flower very early whatever the weather - the colder and gloomier it is, the longer the blooms last, but in a sunny warm season they are comparatively fleeting, so always plant in light shade. They grow in most soils, but make the best plants in heavier moist soils. The Royal Horticultural Society has recognised it as a plant of outstanding excellence by giving it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Snowdrops prefer a moisture-retentive, humus-rich, woodland type soil. The site should be well-drained, cool and shady, but it shouldn’t dry out in summer. Most soils benefit from the incorporation before planting of a good quantity of well decomposed leaf mould or leaf-litter.

Plant bulbs approx. 6cm deep in small clumps of 6 - 12. When the clumps become dense, lift and separate after flowering whilst still in leaf.
Flowers between January and March.
