Galanthus


The snowdrops are now at their peak and stand up straight despite the blustery conditions of the last few days. We have many clumps which brighten up the garden especially in the wilder areas as above where we leave them undisturbed. On roadside verges in Gloucestershire they welcome the spring where residents have planted them over the years. Snowdrops are easy to transplant when they are "in the green", that is once the flowers have finished and the leaves are still green. Each little bulbs eventually then forms another clump.
