Shooting Snowdrop bulbs
I was bought a couple of containers of shooting Snowdrop bulbs and was wondering if I can plant them out or is it too late? The shoots are about 2inches in length.
I reckon plant them out. The garden centres near me (East of England) are selling snowdrops and other bulbs "in the green" now - I bought a pot the other day - so it's probably a good time. Maybe wait for a day when you know there's no really hard frost forecast for a little while, so they can acclimatise a bit. Other more experienced gardeners on here might be able to offer better/more detailed advice than a newbie like me, but that's my two cents!
Plant them nice and deep ... they’ll be fine 😊

Snowdrops are always best planted at the depth that they grew previously;
If a bit shallow the bulbs will work their way deeper down with time.
Provided the ground isn't frozen now is a good time to plant snowdrops.
If ground frozen just wait a bit longer.
Many are sold now.....in the green ready for planting..see link for more advice.
