Snowdrop bulbs bought in the autumn tend to get dehydrated and this can lead to disappointing results. This is why planting bulbs 'in the green' is becoming more and more popular. Snowdrops are perfect for naturalising in grass and they have gorgeous, honey-scented flowers. Plant them in well-drained, moisture-retentive soil.
- Garden care: Plant in naturalistic drifts when they arrive. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died back. Divide large colonies immediately after flowering while the leaves are still green.
