How do snowdrops naturally divide?

That's interesting Berghill.  I shall have to check what mine are doing. The seed pods on the species Galanthus nivalis look full and the snowdrops spread everywhere but I've never collected them or opened anything up.

celandine, every little bit makes a new plant

Pretty yellow flowers though and disappears completely in the summer

Self collected seed not germinating

I don't struggle to germinate delphiniums but I struggle to keep them going in the garden. I only grow the annual ones now

Snowdrops seed about naturally

and the bulbs grow little bulblets from the base that grow into more bulbs.Left alone, clumps become very crowded and eventually produce less (or no) flowers but they will have seeded to create new plants by then.

Big spamming session on several threads yesterday, yours was one of them. By the time the spammer got to the 3rd or 4th thread people were getting p......d off with it.

Mods have removed it all now

Self collected seed not germinating

Neither of the seeds you mention need heat to germinate. Cold GH is good, or outside for the aquilegias. Hardy perennials never need heat to germinate. Heat will prevent some of them from germinating. Aquilegias and delphiniums are Ranunculaceae, many of that family need cold and fresh seed is always best.

Sown fresh, aquilegias germinate before winter. Sown cold in January they germinate in spring

Don't judge sand by its colour. It varies from one gravel pit to another. Texture is what counts.
