Back in December I ordered snowdrops "in the green" from Carolyn's Shade Gardens on the East Coast. Their bad winter meant that the blooming plants were shipped much later than is typical.
Our weather had been so lovely that I wondered if it might be possible to actually plant them in the ground when they arrived. No such luck. Last week's snowstorm is still not melted and we've just ended a week of below normal temperatures.
So these pretty babies got potted up and will live by a cool window for the next couple of weeks until it seems safe to put them out. They arrived in good shape and I'm very excited to add a few new varieties to my slowly growing snowdrop group.
