I bought two packs of snowdrops yesterday from a local outlet. There was only one pack of regular wild snowdrop bulbs while the others were labelled 'rockery snowdrops'. I found this confusing...are there snowdrops hybridised to prefer rockeries?
No, just a meaningless label i think.
Hope they were not wild Snowdrops.
That's what I thought punkdoc thank you. No not wild ones, from cultivated stock it says on the label. I should perhaps have said 'regular' snowdrops as in not fancy hybridised ones.
Let me know if you want anymore, they are better planted just after they finish flowering.
Thanks Lyn. Everywhere I read it says to plant them 'in the green'. That said, last year I bought dry bulbs and early this year they flowered
As you know, they multiply here like slugs?
I tried bulbs but I was only able to get mine going by getting some "in the green" from a relative.
Now mine are doing much better than hers. (They are on chalk.) with thin soil.
