Description

For those who find the winter a difficult season to get through, snowdrops in the green are a must in your garden. They are one of the very first things to emerge and one of the loveliest New Year vases to have at your bedside.

Galanthus nivalis is the straight-up, wild species snowdrop, with silvery-green leaves and neat, slim flowers. Quick to get established if lifted and divided in the green (when it is in active growth and even flowering) on almost any soil, in sun or partial shade.

Care Tips

Divide when plants are in the green (just after flowering and before the leaves yellow). Dig deep under large clumps to lift then split by hand into smaller clumps and plant at the same depth.
