  • In cool locations, the flowering time is postponed by about a month
  • By May at the latest, the flowering time of all snowdrops is over

During or after flowering: plant out, propagate, transplant

During its flowering, the ideal time has come for the snowdrop to multiply. It can be dug up and tolerates this procedure very well. The excavated plant is examined in the root area. It is now shared there. Alternatively, the snowdrop can be propagated via its daughter bulbs after it has blossomed.

A good time has also come to transplant during or after flowering. It should be ensured that the new location is not close to coniferous trees (there is acidic soil that the snowdrop cannot tolerate) and that the soil is well drained. After transplanting, vigorous watering is crucial for growth.
