Coolgardens Plant of the week#3

Well this cannot really be a surprise, but the snowdrops (Galanthus) continue to look amazing, and  I think it would be hard for them not to get a mention. The hellebores are trying hard to take the slot (and may yet do it next week), but planting snowdrops is an incredibly rewarding activity. They naturalise pretty fast, and come in a huge range of varieties. Plant in part shade and moist but well drained soils for best displays. Buy in the green if possible, but bulbs from reputable suppliers usually also do well- don’t stint on the quantities, push the boat out and get 1,000 for a bank or under a hedge.
