Q: When is the best time to transplant snowdrops (Galanthus spp. and cvs.) to other parts of the garden?
A: Traditionally, snowdrops are moved after flowering while the foliage is still green. Dig up small clumps of them, rather than individual bulbs, and replant them at the same level at which they were growing. Transplant promptly so the bulbs don’t have chance to dry out. While you’re at it, you can also move winter aconites (Eranthis spp. and cvs.) “in the green.”
