Galanthus or what we commonly call snow drops do not like bulbs to be congested tightly. After your snow drops have bloomed I would lift the plant clump and spilt in half. Leave half in it’s original growing spot and split the remaining half in 2, and plant 2 new clumps of bulbs.

Make sure they have good loamy soil to grow in. Avoid planting in direct sunlight.

Here is an article that may have more information for you.
