Galanthus... Snowdrops

Traditionally known as a harbinger of spring, with their delicate, nodding flowers in full show, particularly as winter recedes. However some forms will be in flower around Christmas, Galanthus elwesii 'Mrs MacNamara' and even through autumn, Galanthus reginae-olgae. Best planted 'in the green', ie plants with foliage, with almost all of our plants sold, dug straight out of our garden. Moist soils at this time of year, will help the plants root more easily. 'Dry' bulbs can be planted in autumn, but may need more watering to establish, especially after a dry summer. There are around 20 species from Europe. through Turkey, Caucasus, into Western Asia. Mainly growing in woodland and cooler shadier environments, but will take sunnier positions in the UK, with reasonable moisture during their growing season. We will divide clumps, after flowering, every 3-4 years. 

Introduced into our gardens more than 400 years ago, and now fully established in the wild thoughout Great Britain, snowdrops have all the appearance of native species. Four species are now naturalized, with G. nivalis the most widespread. With the exception of the blowsy doubled cultivars, all are attractive to and a vital winter/spring resource for queen bumblebees and honeybees newly emerged from hibernation.

Price is per bulb unless otherwise stated. Typically available freshly dug from our garden, 'in the green' from January until the end of March. We do not supply bulbs outside of this period.
