Description

Chionodoxa luciliae alba is a pure white variety and as with all other chionodoxa will flower early and can be grown in both sun and partial shade. An excellent naturaliser it will provide early coverage amongst areas such as woodland and rockeries. Also known as Glory of the Snow.

Cultivation Instructions:

Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and plant bulbs as per the growing information below. In heavy soils such as clay add grit or humus matter to help with drainage. In sandy soils add organic matter to help with fertility. They will naturalise really well and spread out to cover a wide area.

Protect early growth in the spring from slugs and snails .  Ideal foods are well rotted manures, grass clippings, tomato feed and bone meal.

Care tips:

They will naturalise very well, plant in most soils that are free draining. In heavier soils such as clay cultivate the top layer of soil and add grit and well rotted humus and this should provide the drainage that they need.

They work really well when planted with snowdrops.
