Galanthus Nivalis - Flore Pleno

Our Double Snowdrops in the Green are holders of the RHS Award of Garden Merit. They are grown in the UK specifically for the purpose of being lifted and sold in the green. These are our double snowdrops - Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno, but we sell single snowdrops as well. The snowdrop family contains some of the earliest plants to flower and their small size and delicacy of petal and leaf belie their toughness. All they require is moist ground containing plenty of organic matter.

A number of bulb species, including snowdrops establish better if they are lifted and replanted as quickly as possible while in growth. "In the green" simply means that the bulbs are carrying leaf (and may well be in flower as well) when you receive them. This is the ideal state for snowdrops when they are being moved.

The corresponding disadvantage is that because they are in growth they really do need to be planted within a few days of lifting otherwise they deteriorate rapidly. We therefore restrict our shipping dates to February and early March when the bulbs are at their best. Your bulbs are lifted immediately before despatch and are sent to you so they arrive with you on a Thursday or Friday in time for planting that week-end.

If this appeals to you then you you might like to take a look at the rest of our range of bulbs in the green.
