We grow snowdrops
Bulbs are planted during their dormancy: from July to September. You also need to know that snowdrop bulbs do not tolerate prolonged drying. They are not recommended to be kept outdoors for more than four weeks. For longer storage, packaging often used in commerce is suitable: a perforated plastic bag filled with sawdust or shavings. In it, the bulbs lie without moisture loss for up to three months. Bulbs are planted to a depth equal to the height of three bulbs (i.e., two more of the same can be placed between the planted bulb and the soil surface). This rule is almost unchanged when planting any bulb.
Caring for snowdrops is very simple. In spring, during the snowmelt, it is useful to fertilize the place of planting with complex mineral fertilizer. It is not recommended to abuse nitrogen-rich mixtures. Galanthus, like many onions, respond well to potassium and phosphorus, so it is preferable to fertilize them with ash and bone meal. After flowering, you can not remove the leaves, and it is better to leave the fruit that has set in; the seeds will germinate faster, and the snowdrop curtain will grow stronger in a few years.
Snowdrops reproduce not only by seeds, which are usually carried by ants, but also vegetatively by dividing the bulbs. Therefore, from time to time it is recommended to plant them (on average, every 5-6 years, but can be less common, depending on the condition of the plants and the intensity of their flowering). Plants grown from seeds bloom in 3-4 years.
