Plants Of The Month -February

Galanthus nivalis
Snowdrops lift the spirits during as well as at the tail end of winter. It has been hailed as a symbol of hope since biblical times, when legend has it that an angel turned some of the snowflakes on the ground into snowdrops to show Adam and Eve that the winter was coming to an end. They are frequently found in large numbers in old monasteries, which has led some to believe that the monks brought them over from Italy in the 15th Century, and they were first recorded in Gerard’s Herbal in 1597. 

Forming naturalistic drifts through a woodland floor of filling gaps at the front of the border. It normally looks at its best in late winter and early spring and makes a great planting companion to deciduous shrubs that are looking  dowdy right now. Try under-planting it with spring flowering bulbs, which will push their way up through the handsome, evergreen foliage.
