Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno: Bulbs in the Green

Our Double Snowdrops are grown in the UK specifically for the purpose of being lifted while in growth, sometimes in flower, and sold to gardeners immediately without storage. We sell single snowdrops in the green as well.

Double Snowdrops "in the green" is a misnomer, as the foliage can be yellow and shrivelled: this is normal, and has no adverse effect.

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

Bulbs bought for planting in autumn are dry, and can store a short while. By contrast, snowdrops bought in the green for planting in spring are in growth. This helps them establish quickly, but it also 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: White

Growing Double Snowdrops

All they require, while they are in growth, is moist ground containing plenty of organic matter. If you like the idea of 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?

We grow all of our stock from seed and natural cloning, without taking these precious bulbs from the wild.

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