How to Plant

Dig a hole and tuck your bulb in, pointy side up, about 6" deep. Now give your bulb a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, a long drink of water, and wait for Spring.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets at least partial sun, and space bulbs about 4" apart.

When to Plant

Plant in the Fall.

When to Expect Blooms

Mid to late Spring, around the same time as Tulips.

Care Instructions

There's really no care involved. Enjoy the blooms? 

Extra Credit

Snowdrops will naturalize and spread when they're happy, for a woodland-carpet effect.
