Gardening Questions And Answers
Plant them in a partially shaded spot in moist soil. Dig in plenty of organic matter like compost or leaf mould to enrich the soil. Snowdrops look great planted in drifts underneath deciduous trees and hedges, and tucked into shady corners of flower beds. They can also be naturalised under shady parts of the lawn.
Snowdrops are some of the earliest flowering bulbs to emerge in spring, often when there is still snow on the ground! White, bell-shaped flowers appear as downward-facing ‘drops’ on narrow bright green stems, signaling winter’s end. These charming blooms are deer resistant and can take both full sun and part shade.
Grow snowdrops in moist but well-drained soil in partial shade. Plant snowdrops ‘in the green’ in February and March or as dry bulbs in October and November. There’s no need to prune snowdrops but you may want to deadhead spent blooms to concentrate energy back to the bulb for a better display the following year.
