Where are my snowdrops?

Berghill - what I wouldn't give to have enough space for a snowdrop WOOD! 

As Dove says, deep envy 

Some day I shall have a garden large enough to swing a cat in, I just know it

Shall do! need to get some more, as I fear none of the dry bulbs will ever emerge

Wasn't sure if sticking them into the ground when night temperatures are almost or around freezing, would do them any good, but I suppose they are tough little plants.

Has anyone ever been to see the snowdrop garden/Winter Garden at Anglesey Abbey, by the way? It was recommended by someone on this thread and I'm really tempted to go.

Thanks Jim - it was glorious. And for the first time, I got to see everything calmly and thoroughly without kids in tow - even better!

Lovely photo.

Thanks of all the tips, though now don't know whether to plant together or split! I only have small pot of 3 mind you...

I like the word galanthophile, nut

Yes, my mum is a star - hasn't a clue about plants, but that means I have fun doing up her pot plants on the balcony.

Thanks Berghill, will have a look at those.

Got a gift from my mum today -a pot of snowdrops in the green no less! Now have impossible task of deciding where to plant them!

Thought I'd post a couple of pics I took at RHS Wisley last weekend - it was a glorious Winter's day and the grasses/seed pods looked so beautiful. Proof that this lot even look stunning in Winter!

Before my time Forester  

Thanks Wonderboy - very chivalrous of you!

Will persist with the irritating music and presenter though, as a 1 hour-long gardening program is too good to miss!
