They are bulbs. Snowdrop bulbs dug up after they've flowered. Leaves still on.  Best time to move them, they don't like being dried out and sold in bags in autumn

and once you've got a good clump you can divide them and have hundreds.

Thank you Zoomer.

Not sure if the raised beds will help though. What do you think? If the poppies are annuals the seeds will be everywhere and if they're perennials they'll come through.

Try this one Tracey. 

Galanthus nivalis are your bog standard snowdrops. 50 for £5. They also have doubles and fancies. But they're not the only supplier. Have a look at others.

Don't do that Tracey. Plant them in the spring with the leaves still on. 

Google 'snowdrops in the green'

That doesn't look like laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) to me.

It's soggy out there. For the first time ever I have a clump of snowdrops gone mouldy.

If they're so well established you'll probably need more than one go with the glyphosate. Try and get them in full leaf before the flowers buds come

I should think you can germinate those. You will get Viburnum tinus but not the cultivar 'Gwenllian', you'd need to take cuttings for that

Cuttings I should think CG but I have no experience of these. My soil is about as alkaline as soil gets
