01/03/19 - Snowdrop Update - disappointed that there is only one flower on this Snowdrop this year, which is the same as the last three years, it’s not as vigorous as some of the others I have so will be keeping my fingers crossed it settles in soon. ‘Wasp’ is quite unique and has these very long thin tepals #galanthus #galanthuswasp #snowdrop #snowdropbed

Some I’m finding are quite sensitive to being moved and to re-establish after planting @Kathy - I recently read comments from one specialist chap that now refuses to sell them ‘in the green’ as it’s actually quite disruptive to the roots and sometimes they never recover from being moved like this - but it does work for some of the more common forms like Galanthus nivalis which can always buy easily in the green. So pros and cons for both depending on cultivar.

@Kathy - I don’t think there’s any reduced chance of succeeding by planting dry bulbs as long as you get them fresh and plant them as soon as available in the shops in July/August - biggest failures are when you buy later as dry bulbs have dried out to much. Buy them quick and plant them immediately I reckon 👌🏼
