Fertilization Spring snowflake
Letís add some organic fertilizer or humus to the soil, when planting our bulbous plants, in the spring or autumn; later letís remember to start fertilizing when the flowers are withering, using, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants.

Watering Spring snowflakeTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks . To avoid that the bulb or tuber should become rotten, we must remember to avoid excessively abundant waterings, which keep the soil wet for a long time.

Exposure Spring snowflakePosizione mezza ombra
During the period of vegetative rest, itís possible to take the bulbs or tubers out of the ground; the well cleaned and dried bulbs should be placed in a cool, dry and dark place; to be planted later on during the most indicated time of year. Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day.The Spring snowflake plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.

Treatments Spring snowflake
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Spring snowflake
These bulbous plants favour fairly heavy, averagely drained, not too humid, soils.
