Snowdrop Galanthus Atkinsii

Snowdrop I like the article

Exposure SnowdropPosizione mezza ombra
These plants don't fear the cold weather and therefore can be grown in the garden during any time of year. Perennial plants mainly have a spring and summer development. During the coldest months of the year the aerial part can completely dry out, to come up the year after.For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Snowdrop in a partially shady place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.

Generalities Snowdrop
These plants are bulbeous. This plant in the winter assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 25 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The Snowdrop has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much.

Fertilization Snowdrop
In the spring letís fertilize perennials periodically, using a specific fertilizer for flowering plants, to add to the irrigating water, every 20-25 days; or we can spread a slow release fertilizer near the plants every 3-4 months.

Watering SnowdropTenere Umido
Water regularly, every The , wetting the ground deeply with 2-3 glasses of water , always waiting for the soil to be dry before watering; avoid leaving stagnant water. These plants display a pretty long period of vegetational rest. During this time it isn't necessary to water the plants.

Treatments Snowdrop
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Soil Snowdrop
We suggest growing these plants in a slightly damp substratum, which isnít too drained.
