Where are my snowdrops?

Posted: 13/01/2014 at 10:48

Thanks Berghill and everyone who has replied - I was worried the rain had gotten to them too as everything here is soaking 

That said, the few I put in pots south-facing are emerging...and they were from the same lot as the shady garden side - so maybe they weren't/aren't all dead! Though I take your point Berghill, that many will be and if I get no show, I'll try buying them in the green this year (thanks nut). Spent a bloody fortune on the dried ones too

Good luck Forester - keeping my fingers crossed for yours too!

Great idea Star- group photo!

Ravingham looks lovely - one to checkout soon.

Will let good friend of mine know about the E. Anglian snowdrop trail, as he lives in Norwich and would love too see them some time.

 

enjoy!

Where are my snowdrops?

Thanks everyone- planted mine from dry bulbs in autumn but not so much as one so far - garden totally in shade from November to February (west facing but with some tall buildings shading it from low winter sun). Only one small pot at front of house which faces east and has had winter sun, has a few shooting snowdrops in it.

Here's hoping

Is it because it has been very mild in London up to a few days ago?

Do they need a hard frost to come out?

I planted many and would be gutted if nothing came if it

Tough shrub for shady, windy spot

Posted: 10/01/2014 at 19:47

I've got skimmia in a shady, cold and quite exposed spot- it does very well, with lovely flowers and berries.

My new addition sarcococca is also settling in well to the same north side of my small garden- I'm aware it may not have as many flowers and berries aif one in a less shady spot though.
