Beautiful when left to run wild

These extremely vigorous bulbs (chionodoxa forbesii) from the mountains herald the arrival of spring and are definitely recommended.

Bulb size: 4-5 cm diameter.

Planten+
Chionodoxa forbesii grows best in moist, well-drained soil in a full sun or partially shaded area. As soon as possible after receiving the Chionodoxa forbesii bulbs they can be planted in the garden, a flower pot or in a planter. If not they must be kept in a frost-free area. Bulbs planted in a flower pot are not usually frost resistant. Plant the bulbs in a planting hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulbs. A bulb of 2 cm should be planted in a 6 cm deep hole. The planting distance is about 2-5 cm. Loosen the soil well and plant the bulbs point up. Refill the planting hole and avoid walking over the soil. For larger groups make a wider hole and plant more bulbs.
Verzorging+
Chionodoxa forbesii is a small convex bulb which is ideal for naturalizing under deciduous trees and shrubs. They can be left in the same spot for years without requiring any care and attention. After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow. These bulbs also look great on the lawn, but you can only mow in the spring when the leaves have turned yellow. The following spring you will be rewarded with many more Chionodoxa forbesii flowers. If you want to replant these small bulbs then do so immediately after the flowering. To protect the bulbs grown in a pot against frost, place the pot in a frost-free area or cover it with bubble wrap. Water in dry periods.
Herkomst+
Chionodoxa forbesii is an early bulb with expressive flowers.. This bulb originated in Turkey and is called Glory-of-the-Snow because it flowers even when there is snow on the ground. Seed pods Chionodoxa forbesii will naturalise quickly. It forms new bulbs and seed. Ants help to seed this plant by carrying the little seed pods (see the white part in the picture) to their nests. They find it all so delicious that they begin eating into the pod on the way to the nest, dropping seeds along the way, that promptly germinate and so form new plants.
