Exposure SnowdropPosizione mezza ombra
Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.The Snowdrop usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.

Generalities Snowdrop
The development of the The Snowdrop is Snowdrop isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 25 cm in height. The Snowdrop develops bulbs or tubers.

Fertilization Snowdrop
In the spring letís remember to fertilize our perennial plants, using a slow release granular fertilizer, to add in one solution every 3-4 months. If desired we can also use a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix with the irrigation water every 20-25 days.

Watering SnowdropTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 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 . Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Treatments Snowdrop
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 Snowdrop
Place these plants in a soil with average, drainage, which isnít too moist.
