Collectors Snowdrops - depth of pot?

I have just got a few collectors' snowdrops - Grumpy, Diggory, Rosemary Burnham - but I am not sure if my pots are deep enough. They are 15 cm deep. Will this be all right?
(I don't have ground to grow them in.)

    All mine are in the ground now, but I used to grow some in alpine pans which are about that size and they seemed happy.

    Thank you Dove - that is what they are - sort of Alpine pans but glazed. Could you tell me how often you would split them. Do you wait for 3 years or more?

    I would wait until there’s a decent sized clump ... probably several years depending on how they do  :)
