Snowdrops in February

The month when those lovely little white flowered plants make an appearance and remind us we are getting closer to Spring.


  • Plant Snowdrop bulbs about 10 cms deep.

  • Snowdrops look at their best planted in drifts to form clumps.

  • Due to the low hanging flowers, it makes it hard to see them clearly. If you can plant them on a raised flower bed, bank or in a wall.

  • Potted Snowdrops bought in the winter, plant them out into the garden. This is a good way of getting them going.

  • Best time to plant fully grown Snowdrops is in the Spring. This is in the green which is after flowering, but whilst still in leaf around March/April time.

  • When planting as grown plants, ensure they are also planted to the same depth, ensuring the white parts of the stems are in the soil.

  • Autumn Snowdrop bulbs are the most cost effective way of obtaining Snowdrops.

  • When purchasing your Autumn Snowdrop bulbs, ensure they are well moistened. Dried bulbs will prove difficult if not fatal to grow successfully.

  • Ensure to remove from containers and plant in a part shaded, moisture retaining, but draining soil area.

  • Snowdrops thrive in a natural setting, so ensure there is plenty of moist soil and mulch.
