For many gardeners the snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis, heralds the end of winter. It's extraordinarily hardy, and can be relied 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.
Galanthus nivalis grows in most soils, but grows best in heavier, moist soils. It's 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 given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
