Galanthus elwesii
White honey!
Just like honey! The flowers of the snowdrop (Galanthus elwesii) have a delicious honey-like fragrance. The white flowers with green markings on the rounded tops are a real pleasure. The potted bulbs will add a touch of warmth to your living room and you can also plant them outdoors in a pot or planter. The flowers bloom in the spring.
Potted bulbs aren't frost hardy, so bring the pot indoors or protect the plant with bubble wrap. The Galanthus loves the sun and partial shade. Water once a week. Give it extra water during dry periods. The flower bulbs come in a nursery pot.

Plant your snowdrops (Galanthus elwesii) as soon as possible upon receipt, in the garden, or in pots or window boxes. Store frost free if not planting immediately. Potted bulbs will continually require either being stored frost free or have their pot wrapped in bubble wrap over the winter. Plant each bulb in a hole 3 times deeper than the size of the bulb - a 2 cm bulb goes in a 6 cm hole - plant them roughly 2-5 cm apart. The soil should be forked loose beforehand - plant the bulb roots down. Fill the hole and try not to walk over where you plant them. They can be planted individually with a trowel or bulb planter, but also in groups. To this end, dig a wider hole and plant a few bulbs together. Snowdrops will thrive in a humus rich soil and full sun or part shade.

Galanthus Elwesii In The Garden

The cute, white little flowers of the snowdrop always look their best in large groups. The more you plant the better the effect so plant in groups of at least 15 bulbs together. You could also try say 25-50 of them scattered evenly over the bordor, or a large planter. Galanthus elwesii will do fine in pots or window boxes too. Do ensure fresh potting compost and layer the bottom of the pot with potsherds or hydro-pellets. They look great coming up through the lawn too!


Galanthus elwesii is a small bulb that once planted is perfect for allowing to naturalise - they can stay right where they are for years on end and there will be more and more of them! Do only cut back when the leaves are turned yellow. If they are in the lawn, mow around them. With good care, the following spring you will have even more flowers. If you want to replant them somewhere else, dig them up immediately after flowering. Potted snowdrops will require some protection from frost so store them frost free or pack the pot in bubble wrap. Do water when it gets really dry.


Galanthus elwesii is a gorgeous little snowdrop with pure white flowers. This particular variety differs slightly from the better known Galanthus nivalis. This is noticeable by the leaf more than anything else. This one is quite broad and a bright green. The bulbs of this harbinger of spring usually multilply pretty quickly and you should have lots more flowers year upon year. So lovely to be able to pick for a vase on the living room table too!
