They're all so lovely! I think I like the way this one looks very visible. I'd like to see snow drops become more available here in the USA. We don't see many at all. Gorgeous. Thanks for showing different types of them.

So many different types remind me of ballerina dresses 👗

I think they would look great in some of your woodland areas laura - strange how they aren’t that easily available in the US - I have a couple more which haven’t surfaced yet, although slightly nervous that I might have lost them. I’m off to an RHS show on Tuesday so may get some new ones 🤭🙈 @columbiariver

I love them Vanessa, always been fascinated by them. I remember seeing tons of them on trips to the Lake District when I was younger and got hooked. Although this is the first garden I’ve had that I’ve got them established @nessas

I bought quite a few snowdrops last year (many 'in the green', which is the traditional way of buying them) and quite pleased they have multiplied. I have the standard snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) growing in my little woodland area, but I bought a few select cultivars which I keep in aquatic pots. Most were one or two bulbs each. I'm planning to create a special sand bed later this year to sink the pots into, creating a good growing environment for them 🤓📖 #snowdrop #galanthus #newgrowth

👍🏼👏🏼 No sign of mine yet but I suspect that is because my soil is heavy clay...maybe not the best environment for them 😏

Joan, it was like Christmas had come round again - I'd ordered a few nice snowdrops 'in the green', but each one arrived in flower - they were all so delicately packed in cardboard tubes to protect them. Totally didn't expect them to arrive in flower but lovely surprise. I'll share some more later 👍🏼 @joanboston

Oh that's a shame @kathy , they are beautiful - always had a thing for snowdrops since I was little but failed to grow them. Having done a bit more reading I'm a bit more confident in trying again. I think I will keep these new ones in terracotta pots for display rather than in the ground. I've put a cheaper one in the ground for now! 😂😂
