Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
For a spring bulb with a big impact, try this striking giant snowdrop. Galanthus elwesii produces some of the largest snowdrop flowers, up to 2.5cm long with a beautiful honey fragrance. This choice snowdrop loves to shelter in dappled shade at the base of trees and shrubs, but looks equally at home in an alpine garden, or naturalised in grass. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 10cm (4"). Bulb size: 4/5.
Snowdrop bulbs are ideal for autumn planting. For spring planting choose snowdrops in the green.

Flowering Months
Snowdrops require reliably moist soil throughout summer. Water bulbs if necessary until they are fully established. When growing snowdrops, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally as this will feed the bulb for the following year. Where bulbs are naturalised in grass, avoid mowing the area until their foliage has died back. Caution: Snowdrop bulbs are an irritant to skin and eyes, and are harmful if eaten. Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten
Plant snowdrops in the dappled shade of deciduous trees. Snowdrop bulbs thrive in reliably moist, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting to improve less than ideal soils. Plant bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4") and a distance of 10cm (4") apart. For natural looking drifts of snowdrop flowers, gently cast them across the planting area and plant them where they land!
