Digging up Snowdrop bulbs

R25R25 Posts: 3

Can you dig them up and replant at this time of year? We have a border that is full of weeds now but a lot of snowdrops usually come up. Any advice very welcome!

    Now's a really good time to do it ... perfect in fact.  Just keep them damp when they're out of the ground and make sure you give them a good watering in. image

    Yep - no problem R25. I've just done some of mine, although they're split up into separate pots to go in various other sites.

    You could do that with yours if you want to take your time clearing your border. Just watch they don't dry out, and leave the foliage there so that they can die back in their own time  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
