Snowdrops Plants for Sale Online (Galanthus)
Snowdrops plants are for sale online. Snowdrops (Galanthus) are lovely early flowering bulbs, that bloom with pure white little-bell-shaped blossoms in the midst of winter. Sometimes even as early as January. Nothing looks as beautiful as a carpet of snow, with little snowdrop plants peeking through. As soon as these little plants start blooming, you can be sure that the spring season cannot be far off. Snowdrops are one of the earliest flowering flower bulbs we know and favourite spring flowering blooms. They are easy to care for bulbs that naturalise easily in the garden. You can combine Galanthus Flore Pleno and other Snowdrops varieties with winter aconite and hellebores, for example. Snowdrop bulbs also combine wonderfully with the pink coloured blooms of perennial Cyclamen Neapolitanum. They are also ideal for mass planting in lawns and flower borders. Mass planted, Galanthus bulbs look quite spectacular.
Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno
Especially popular and unique is the double flowering snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno. Flore Pleno is a double flowering beauty with a green centred heart. It is one of the oldest cultivars we know of. Galanthus nivalis Flore Pleno flower bulbs are also winter hardy. They can withstand cold temperatures extremely well and bloom from February to March.
Planting Snowdrops Bulbs
Planting snowdrops bulbs is easy. The ideal time for planting spring flowering bulbs is late autumn. To plant them, the regular rule of thumb is to plant flower bulbs as deep as twice their length. Because these are small plants, only growing to approximately 10 to 15 centimetres tall, it is recommended to mass plant them. You can also plant the bulbs in pots for placement on your garden table or terrace. Galanthus bulbs prefer humus-rich soil, that is moist in spring and dryer during the summer. They also tolerate shade well, as they are in fact woodland plants, and can be planted both in sunny and half shady garden areas - under shrubs and trees for example. For naturalisation, plant the bulbs in the lawn or under shrubs and trees in woodland gardens. The bulbs can be left in the ground, where they will propagate naturally. Should the clumps of plants become too large for your liking, you can dig them up after flowering. Just divide the bulbs and replant them.
Snowdrops and Lily of the Valley
Snowdrops look lovely growing in pots and containers. To extend the flowering period, try combining Galanthus bulbs (flowering from January to April, depending on the variety you choose) with Lily of the Valley bulbs (Convallaria majalis). Lily of the Valley flower bulbs has the same striking snow-white coloured blooms and fresh green leaves as snowdrops. Once your snowdrops bulbs have finished blooming, the beautiful, scented, Lily of the Valley will take centre stage. For an interesting effect, plant the bulbs in large glass jars or a glass vase and decorate with peat moss for a romantic and rustic effect. Snowdrops are for sale online.
Lovely Snowdrops (Galanthus) - harbingers of spring
Who doesn't recognise the simple snowdrop? Snowdrops are harbingers of spring and one of the earliest flowering flower bulbs we know of, flowering during the coldest months of the year, from January to April, with their delicate white bell-shaped flowers. If you really want something special in the garden, then double snowdrops, such as the Snowdrop Flore Pleno, are highly recommended. The flowers of this special bulb are somewhat wider apart and have a central crown of pale green flower leaves.
The enchanting Snowdrop is a classic beauty
The enchanting snowdrop is a classic beauty suitable to run wild in the garden, in the lawn and under trees and shrubs. Because snowdrops love shady spots, they can also be planted in wooded areas. During the coldest months of the year, the garden usually has little ornamental value so plant a lot of snowdrops for a striking result.
