Snowdrops are the stars of late winter and early spring – and they look just as beautiful on their own, in a mossy snowdrop pot, as they do combined with other plants.
Before you plant, collect some moss from the garden to provide an attractive green backdrop, to make the dainty white flowers stand out. We used 10cm aged clay pots, perfect for achieving a rustic look. If you’d prefer to combine your snowdrop pot with other plants, you could try creating a snowdrop container with other plants.
Create a simple and springy snowdrop pot, in just three steps.
You Will Need
- Flowering snowdrops (3)
- Small pots
- Multi-purpose, peat-free compost
Carefully remove the snowdrops from their pots, being careful not to disturb the soil, and place inside your clay pots (add potting compost first, if necessary).
Once your snowdrops are in the pot, top off the soil with moss, aiming to cover any bare compost. You only need a little, so don’t collect much.
To settle your snowdrops in, give the pot a good watering. Place it where you can enjoy the delicate, nodding blooms.
Reuse the plants in the garden
The plants can be moved to the garden when the display is past its best. The snowdrops will come up year after year, meaning there’s life beyond the pot and no money is wasted.
