How can you resist such dainty looking but tough flowering bulbs? On the face of it they all look the same. However, once you start looking carefully you can find many subtle differences in flower markings and those differences can work out to be very expensive. For example, there have been single bulbs of the more unusual varieties selling for £50 or more and, in an extreme case, £725 was paid for just one bulb!
Fortunately, the humble snowdrop can be bought in bulk for a fraction of those prices. Either ’in the green’ which means in full leaf around March/April time, or as bulbs during the summer months. These will delight you for years to come as they naturalise and increase from year to year.
