Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno

Bulbs bought for planting in autumn are dry, and can store a short while.

We sell single snowdrops as well, which provide more food for bees.

The snowdrop family contains some of the earliest plants to flower and their small size and delicacy of petal and leaf belie their toughness.

By contrast, snowdrops bought in the green for spring planting are in growth. This helps them establish quickly, but it means they really do need to be planted promptly after receipt, within a few days. In spring, your bulbs are lifted immediately before despatch and are sent to you so that they arrive on a Thursday or Friday in time for planting that weekend.


  • Colour: Double, white flowers in February/March
  • Height: 4-6 ins (10-20cms)
  • Scent: Slight
  • Not as good for bees as the single variety. 
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
  • Sold dry for planting in the autumn, or
  • Sold in the green for planting in early spring.

Growing Double Snowdrops

All they require, while they are in growth, is moist ground containing plenty of organic matter. If you want carpets of delicate white flowers in late winter, then you should divide the clumps every 4-5 years to improve flowering, and plant the daughter clump nearby. 

Planting Companions for Snowdrops

Because snowdrops come into growth so early, they are naturals under any deciduous tree, rose, or shrub, where there is light on the ground when snowdrops are in business.

Did You Know?

For the best support for the bees that wake up on warm winter days, you should use some single snowdrops as well.
