Snowdrops

Lightens up the gloom

Lightens up the gloom

Today is a day to  be indoors by the fire with a nice warming rum and black, as I  look  outside onto  a cold, foggy,dreary,overcast day, onto an equally dreary garden.  Except that there is one plant  trying very successfully to banish this gloom as it lights up the garden by pushing away the gloom with its brilliant white display,under the trees and shrubs.

The Snowdrop and no garden should be without a patch of snowdrops in the garden.Even after the hardest of winters up they come  to lighten up those dark winter days, to remind us that spring is just around the corner.

At this time of year the best way to get them established in the garden is to plant those which have been grown in pots , which  now  are growing and flowering in these pots.This way they establish very quickly.They prefer a moist, humus type soil but seem to tolerate a range of conditions. The best thing is,they come up ever year and each year they spread out a bit more.
