Snowdrops this year?

The work to remove the Red Campion continues. In fact, it’s nearly all gone – until next year, when no doubt the self-seeded offspring will emerge.

However, next year is next year. In the meantime, I have finally planted out the dwarf snowdrops that my dad gave me in February.

Hairy bittercress had in invited itself to the pot containing the snowdrops, so I got a pleasant surprise when clearing this way. Shoots, which I can only supposed are the snowdrops, are starting to show.

Unlike yesterday when the mist gave way to pretty autumnal sunshine, there has been nothing but gloom today. It is therefore heartening to think of flowers instead of leaden skies and encroaching darkness.

What will be the next blooms in your garden?

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    I just planted snowdrops today for the first time ever! Eager to see which blooms first, the snowdrops or winter aconite. Probably it will be a dandelion though…..

  2. Our next blooms promise to be gladioli – within a few days

    Snowdrops early in spring will be lovely Helen. I too planted extra tulips and grape hyacinths for next spring but I am a total amateur when it comes to bulbs, must learn loads about them and how they will do in the soil during the wet winter.

  4. I expect snowdrops will be next for me too. They were here when we arrived 26 years ago and delight me every spring.

    The lady who helped us this year gave me some of her bulbs- I think some were snowdrops- I do hope so.
