These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce. The Snowdrop should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.

Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them. During this period of the year the The Snowdrop needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let’s irrigate every 1-2 weeks with about 2-3 glasses of water .

Fertilization Snowdrop
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.

Treatments Snowdrop
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Snowdrop
These plants need a scarcely drained soil, which can remain slightly damp.
