Informal discussions have started 🤭😉 @clipperty - although i need to bring some confirmed proposals this week. But I’m off work now till Wednesday so unlikely to hear anything this week. No going back now 🙈
Indubitably... they used to say that in an ancient tv show but I can’t remember the name of it...Can you help me out @rachelbrooks @awomanonabike @carolecuttingitfine ??? 🤣🤔🤪 And Yes, you’re def a bulbaholic Rich xx
These have been surprisingly more successful than I hoped - getting dormant snowdrop bulbs to take and establish can be difficult when compared to buying ‘in the green’ but I think it really depends how early you buy them, how quickly you plant them and where you’ve planted them! I’ve had about 40% survive in this patch - originally 10 bulbs planted 2-3 years ago, you can see where the four surviving ones have come up and are now multiplying 😊 #galanthus #galanthus-nivalis #snowdrop
Next few photos from me might look repetitive - I like to keep a full diary of all my plants at each stage of there life! I'm a plant geek at heart 🤓😂. This is a type of Snowdrop bulb - For those GT'ers who are new to planting bulbs, this is the right way round to plant them. Got a load more to plant in my woodland path 😫 #snowdrop #galanthus #galanthusnivalis
I should have added that you would typically plant them about 5-10cm deep, in partial shade. I'm not sure how successful these will be as snowdrop bulbs are quite susceptible to drying out before being planted. It's widely recognised that buying them 'in the green' (as clumps that have already flowered and still have their leaves) is a more reliable way to buy them. Fingers crossed!
