It's official - spring is here. When the Snowdrops bloom I know the worst is over and it will soon be green instead of brown again in the garden. These are the double flowered ones which are lovely. I just wish they weren't all pointing down at the ground so you could see their 'faces'. These will stay in bloom pretty much until the weather heats up. They just can't take any extended period of head and will grow long, leggy foliage before disappearing until next spring. We have got these planted all over the place because even though they are not woodland plants, they can be planted under trees because they are come up so early in the season that they are finished ripening their foliage before the leaves come out to create shade. There are a number of different species and this double form and they are not expensive bulbs so there' no excuse for not having them in the garden. They multiply rather rapidly and transplant easily even 'in the green' so you can rearrange them as you wish.
