When you think of spring, you can't help but think of Snowdrops. These reliable Galanthus Elwesii are definitely among the joys of spring. Galanthus Elwesii are much bolder than her sisters, being known as the Giant Snowdrop, they stand slightly taller and stronger but still hold the same attributes when planted in swathes beneath deciduous trees. 
 
Galanthus Elwesii are great for bringing indoors as cut flower during those cold months so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your home with their long vase life. 

How to plant Galanthus Elwesii

  • Find a location with well-drained, moist soil
  • Snowdrops grow well in full Sun or partially-shaded areas. 
  • If planting in the garden, plant the bulbs 6-8cm below the soil surface.
  • If planting in Pots, find a container and fill it with good-quality, well-drained soil. Ensure there is adequate draining holes.
  • Plant in the Autumn, September through November.
  • After planting, water well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.
  • Snowdrops will flower February through to March.
