||October (flowerbulb planting time)
We include the small bulb size of Galanthus nivalis in our assortment so that planting lots of Snowdrops is still reasonably priced. Please note that the small bulbs don’t always flower in the first year. It’s therefore advisable to plant the standard sized bulbs alongside the smaller bulbs. Bulbsize: 4/5 cm (instead of the standard size 6+cm).
Description Snowdrop: This is easily the most well-known Snowdrop and can be seen in gardens all over Europe. Galanthus nivalis, the common Snowdrop, is ideal for naturalising in grass or under trees. The common Snowdrop is beautiful in combination with the yellow of Winter aconites, or the lilac of spring Crocuses.
The common Snowdrop is undemanding and every couple of years a clump can be lifted and divided, creating a carpet of Snowdrops in no time at all.
Galanthus nivalis is native to southern Europe.
