Single snowdrops which they are more commonly known, are the first signs of spring indicating that the longer days are on their way. The flowers are a pure white with a green marking on the inner petal tips. These bulbs are really excellent for naturalising and as we supply some of the larger bulbs that are stored in the cool there is no need to buy them in the green as these will flower in the first spring. Ensure that they are planted in soil that has been cultivated to a depth of 15cms and is free draining. They are happy in shade and sun although in the sunnier areas the flowers will not last quite so long. Ensure that food such as well rooted compost or bone meal is available during the leaf and flower stage for them to produce flowers for the following spring. Can be grown in containers if required but do not use too much multi purpose compost in the pot. Work really well with aemone nemerosa and the specie crocus such as tommasinanus.
