For many gardeners snowdrops herald the end of winter. They are extraordinarily hardy, especially the common species, and can be depended on to flower very early whatever the weather - the colder and gloomier it is, the longer the blooms last, but in a sunny warm season they are comparatively fleeting, so always plant in light shade. They grow in most soils, but make the best plants in heavier moist soils. They are most successfully transplanted while growing (in the green), and dry bulbs often take a season to settle down before flowering. The Royal Horticultural Society has recognised it as a plant of outstanding excellence by giving it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
