Dainty, double, pure white, pear-shaped flowers with green-tipped inner petals in January and February and narrow, grey-green leaves. These delightful double snowdrops are ideal for naturalising in the border under deciduous trees and shrubs. Plant the pots as soon as possible after purchase in well-drained, moisture-retentive,Snowdrop bulbs bought in the autumn tend to get dehydrated and this can lead to disappointing results. This is why planting bulbs 'in the green' is becoming more and more popular.Please note the snowdrops have finsihed flowering.
- Garden care: Plant pots in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) on arrival. Where pots of bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died back.
