Growing Snowdrop Bulbs

The snowdrop family are known for attracting bees and are an important source of nectar very early in the year. They are a woodland plant, which means that ideal growing conditions for snowdrop bulbs are partial shade, in moist but well-drained soil.

What are Galanthus elwesii In the Green?

Galanthus elwesii In the Green are actively growing flower bulbs, they are usually planted in autumn as a dormant bulb. Many small bulbs can struggle over winter, not because of the cold but because the bulbs have been out of the ground for a long time, so it can be more successful to buy them in spring. As bulbs in the green, the root system and foliage have developed, giving them a better chance to thrive straight away.

By buying Galanthus elwesii In the Green you are purchasing bulbs that have survived the dormant period, therefore, each bulb should produce flowers.

Caring for your Bulbs In the Green

Try to plant your Galanthus elwesii In the Green within a couple of days of receiving them. If you can’t plant them straight away, make sure the box is open and there is air flow to each pack we send, this is especially important later in spring when the weather begins to warm up.

The trick for most bulbs, but particularly bulbs in the green is keeping them moist, but not water logged. Soil allows a small amount of air around the bulb to prevent them from rotting. The residual moisture in the soil keeps them from drying out.

After planting, your snowdrops in the green will need to be watered well, as they will have lost quite a lot of moisture between lifting and planting. They won’t need to be fed when you plant them, although it can be beneficial when the flowers have finished, to give the new bulbs a better chance to gather nutrients before they become dormant.

Snowdrop foliage is hardy, and spring bulbs can withstand the cold weather, so don’t worry about frosts.
