A mighty seedling from the snowdrop rich garden (on sandy soil) of David Bromley, this is a G.plicatus hybrid with very showy flowers, curvaceous even, with thickly textured petals opening widely to show the green stained inner segments. Early flowering and a must have 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.
