Midas was found here at Avon Bulbs the same week that we hosted the Immortals’ Lunch Party in February 2011. The just noticed seedling Midas, then in its first flowering, was secreted away under an upturned pot in the copse where much snowdropping was being enjoyed, hidden away from our visitors! It took 6 years before we sold any. A 'changeling' snowdrop - the green markings turning a glowing golden yellow a few days after first opening. We think that it is a G. x valentinei hybrid and colours up better in more direct spring sunshine. Supplied "in the green".

Planting Instructions

All snowdrops prefer cool, moist conditions in the spring and a surprisingly dry summer dormancy in the shade. Dig a deep but narrow planting hole probably 4-6" (10-15cm) deep (an asparagus trowel is a great implement for the job) loosening the soil at depth and introduce your snowdrop into this at a depth slightly greater than it was previously planted (where the stem turns green!) Firm in and water the soil remembering to label the spot. If planting more than one of the same variety, plant the next about 4" (10) away ideally. They will clump up in time.
