Well...out of the 100 or so that I’ve planted over the last 3 years, I’ve got about 8 come up in one spot this year 🙌🏼🙄 I reckon that must almost qualify as a clump doesn’t it? 🤔😆 have a great day flowers 🌸 #snowdrop #wherehavealltheothersgone #snowdrops
I reckon either the squirrel or the blackbirds must dig them up Ian, or maybe even I do when I’m weeding/planting 🙈 or maybe they just take forevvvvver! 🙄 Tash, I’ve planted bulbs, flowering plants and plants in the green...no idea which fare better in my garden...pot luck I think! 😂 @bigemrg @tash74
@tash74 @ublaszko - My fifty were all planted in the green, and some were in flower when I planted them! That was three years ago! I think it must be too wet where I have them, even though they're in a sheltered spot!
Supposedly, they like to have moisture unlike all the other spring bulbs (although not as much as fritillarias). The one bulb that flowered for me last year seems to be happy and I water it the same way as my camellias and rhododendrons. Consistently moist but not soggy. @bigemrg
@ublaszko - Hmm, that's interesting Urszula! I'm sure I read somewhere that they preferred free draining soil and that it was a good idea to mix grit into the soil where you wanted to plant them! Of course, I read this after I'd planted mine! 😀
And it is lovely in the way that only a single snowdrop can be. I think that brown one you managed to catch earlier may have something to do with it. But no matter, you will soon have lots anyway 👍🏻👏🏻🌱😊
