For many gardeners snowdrops herald the end of winter. They're extraordinarily hardy, and can be relied on to flower very early in the season. The colder and gloomier the weather, the longer the blooms last, but in a sunny warm spring they are comparatively fleeting.
Galanthus 'S. Arnott' is a vigorous snowdrop, being bigger and bearing larger flowers than the species. It's named after Samuel Arnott, who was a keen gardener and snowdrop fanatic. He discovered this larger form growing in his garden and started cultivating it. Its flowers have a captivating honey fragrance.
For best results grow Galanthus 'S. Arnott' in heavy soil in partial shade. Divide clumps after flowering and plant 'in the green' rather than as bare bulbs in autumn.
