When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Galanthus nivalis

5 April 2018 • Good morning all. The last of the snowdrops until next year but boy, have they lasted a long time. Some good things come from a long winter...🤔

Morning, worst year for snowdrops for me, on the list to get more and keep in pots I think 🤔

Hi Jason, sorry to hear that. I wonder what got them 🤔 They will look lovely in pots though 💚 @Jasonsparkes1

comment
Jasonsparkes1

Not sure 🤔 They've never multiplied where they are, and very few flowers this year, but then the weather has been erratic to say the least. Want to add some in pots either way, as this is rented, want to make sure I take as much as poss with me when we leave (looking for somewhere else currently)

Love the combo, one I had in mind for some pots with Heuchera too. My mums Mondo have been so hard to keep alive it put me off them a bit 😕

Thanks Jason. I was going to add, it’s a really easy one too, but not if you’re having problems keeping the mondo alive. 🤔 I wonder why...🤷‍♀️ @Jasonsparkes1

I can’t think. It seems pretty indestructible though have just looked it up and it prefers slightly acid soil. Maybe it’s too chalky? @Jasonsparkes1
