Galanthus flore pleno (double snowdrop)

The beautiful double flowering form of nivalis. Umbrella shaped, little white flowers, full of intricate green patterns on the underside. Spring is the ideal time to plant smaller bulbs such as snowdrops. 'In the green' allows us to see which bulbs have grown successfully when we lift them. They transplant very easily, even after flowering.

As snowdrops push through in early January, you know it’s time to start thinking about the spring season ahead. Perfect for naturalising, snowdrops team up well with Eranthis Hyemalis (Winter Aconites) and bluebells to create swathes of beautiful early blooms.
