Should snowdrops flower in their first year? I planted some earlier in the Autumn but all I have is green leafy stems. Or could it be due to all the rain we have had?



If you planted them last autumn I take it they were dry bulbs; so it could take a year for them to establish themselves. Fingers crossed you'll get flowers next year.

I bought 2 lots, one last year, one this year and took the flowers off both for the 1st year. It will help bulk them up and the anticipation will be all the greater.
