A selection of G.elwesii from an Oxfordshire garden found by Joe Sharman. The inner segments are marked with a bold green cross in which the topmost area has been filled in, but more noticeably they have very long, rather narrow outer segments tipped in pale green seemingly looking even bigger on what is not a tall plant. Supplied 'in the green'.
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" (10cm) away ideally. They will clump up in time.
