10x Summer snowflake Leucojum 'Gravetye Giant' white

Leucojum aestivum ‘Gravetye Giant’
Playful effect
In contrast to its name, the summer snowflake 'Gravetye Giant' (Leucojum) actually blossoms in spring. That's why the plant is also known as the spring snowflake. The leaves of this snowflake already start to appear in winter! The small stems carry between 3 and 7 white flowers. What a pretty, playful sight that is! Plant the bulbs in the spring. In well-drained soil. The flowers bloom in the spring.
The bulbs can be planted in open ground or in a pot. Potted bulbs aren't frost hardy, so bring the pot indoors or protect the plant with bubble wrap. Space the bulbs out when planting in open ground. The distance between plants is three times the width of the bulb. Plant the bulb the depth of three times the bulb's height. Plant the bulbs in full sun or partial shade. Water the bulb immediately after planting. Don't water it until the soil feels dry to the touch. 0

How do I plant the summer snowflake?
It’s best to plant the summer snowflake as soon as possible after receipt. Plant it directly into the ground, in a flower pot or in a spacious planter. The summer snowflake grows best in loose, well-drained soil. A sheltered spot in the sun, semi-shade or in the shadow will do just fine.

The summer snowflake should be planted at a depth of 3 times the height of the bulb. If the flower bulb is 5 cm. high, then it should be planted at a depth of 15 cm. The distance between small bulbs is 5 - 8 cm and 10 - 15 cm between larger ones.

Planting can be done in spring as well as in autumn. Use a small spade or a special bulb planter for planting. Plant the bulb with the tip up and the roots down.

Planting the summer snowflake in the garden
Find a suitable place in the border or create a flowerbed. Loosen the soil well and divide the flower bulbs across the surface. That can be done in groups of 6 or spread out evenly. Plant the tulip as indicated above, don't walk on the freshly planted area and water immediately.

How do I plant the summer snowflake in a pot or planter?
Put a layer of hydro grains on the bottom of a decorative pot. Place the flower bulb in the potting soil at the right depth. Water immediately after planting. It's best to put the pot inside in winter, as a tulip in a pot doesn't cope well with frost.

How do I care for the summer snowflake?
The summer snowflake doesn't require a lot of care. Water well during dry spells. The bulb will naturalise quite well in fairly moist soil. And more and more bulbs are likely to appear. This makes your garden blossom even more next year. Clip off the spring snowflake's leaves once they turn yellow.
