The sight of brave little snowdrops pushing their way through the frostiest ground gives every gardener new hope. Once the first porcelain petals have opened you know winter aconites and crocuses aren’t far behind: before you know it every inch of soil is bursting with dainty colour and the gardening year has begun.

Give snowdrops dappled shade in soil enriched with compost or even better, leafmould – autumn leaves rotted down for a year or two to mimic the woodland floor snowdrops love. Snowdrops make beautiful partners for winter shrubs like dogwoods and witch hazels, and other spring flowers including hellebores, winter-flowering aconites and Cyclamen coum.
