Hi
After recent visits in winter gardens I fall in love with snowdrops. Very Happy

Now I'm looking to buy or swap for other plants or seeds snowdrops in green, any unusual species. It is almost impossible to find anything but common snowdrop(galanthus nivalis) in the garden centers. So maybe someone has a nice galanthus clump and like to share few bulbs, please let me know yours conditions, please! Wink


Cheers
Joanna

What about Spring Snowflakes and Summer Snowflakes (also known as the Loddon Lily)?

I haven't any bulbs for you at the moment as I've only recently planted some in my pond and I'm waiting to see what happens.

You could ask in garden centres for the Loddon Lily but I imagine autumn would be the best time to plant these.

yeah! snowflakes are good as well!

I've read that all winter flowering bulbs( aconites, bluebells and snowdrops) are the best to move and plant when in flower or just after(but still in green).I actually done it last year with common snowdrop and have few happy clumps now.

There is some places that sell them via web from England mostly, but they're very expensive. Wanna try if some wanna share, before spend little fortune Embarassed
