Snowdrops Not Flowering


Louiserose added on April 20, 2015 | Answered

I planted 100 snowdrops in the green last year, mostly under trees. This year they came up but none of them flowered. I live in southwest France and it does get dry here. Is this why?

Lack of moisture could be an issue, but also if they were newly purchase bulbs they could very well have been stressed. Perhaps were not planted soon enough and this also could be an issue. Since you did have leaves but no flowers, did they receive any fertilizer? To much Nitrogen can cause leafs but lack of flowers.
Review the article below with planting information.
