More Information

Galanthus Greatorex In the Green (Double Snowdrop), these bulbs are a rare double flowering snowdrop with multiple layers of petals, creating a coveted and exquisite double bloom effect. These are hardy perennials and are able to thrive in the coldest of conditions.

With a height of around 30cm, the Galanthus Greatorex In the Green (Double Snowdrop) are perfect for planting in clusters under trees or near the front of your shrub beds to welcome the season’s change with graceful charm.

They can be naturalised in woodlands or meadows, as well as in garden borders under deciduous trees. Once your snowdrops are established, these bulbs require minimal maintenance, becoming increasingly lush and numerous with each passing year.

The method of lifting snowdrop bulbs ‘in the green’ whilst actively growing in spring has always been the most successful way to deliver these bulbs.

Caring for your Double Snowdrops In the Green

Choose a location with partial to full shade for your double snowdrop bulbs, mimicking their natural woodland habitat. They prefer rich, well-draining soil consistent with their woodland origins, they are also at home in damp areas, making them remarkably adaptable.

You could try to enrich your planting site with well-rotted organic matter to provide the rich soil these snowdrop bulbs favour. Ensure that the soil is well-draining to prevent bulb rot. After planting, water generously to settle the soil around the bulbs. Thereafter, water sparingly as these snowdrop bulbs are drought-tolerant once established, and excessive moisture can be detrimental.

After the blooms have faded, let the foliage die back naturally, as their leaves provide energy for the bulb’s next blooming cycle. You could remove spent flowers to prevent self-seeding if desired. To propagate or control the spread, lift and divide clumps after foliage has yellowed, gently separating the bulbs and replanting immediately.
