Bigger and better than the standard Leucojum, which are otherwise known as Snowflake Daffodils, with the large, pendant, white flowers stretching up to 2.5cm across.

A long flowering bulb, they will bring you weeks of joyous blooms. The flowers open early in the season above the glossy, green foliage.

Leucojum like plenty of sun and a well drained soil. It is a good idea to prepare your soil by digging through some well rotted manure a few weeks prior to planting. This will improve drainage and add nutrients to the soil, giving your plants a good start.

Plant Leucojum bulbs three times as deep as the bulb is high with the pointy end up. The depth will protect them from heat and soil erosion. Space 10-20cm apart, more if you are leaving the bulbs in to naturalise.

Once the flowering has finished you can remove the flower stem. Allow the foliage to remain until it has yellowed. The foliage gathers energy and nutrients at this time for next years blooms. Keep relatively moist during this time and add a little general purpose fertiliser.
