I can't imagine 19F, much less 9F. I'm glad you received some new plants, though - the grower must think spring is headed your way ;)

KRIS — Supposedly snowdrops are best shipped when blooming or just after. They are dug up in a climate a bit warmer than mine and quickly shipped. They start growing here when it's very cold and often there's snow on the ground. All my other plant orders don't ship until the end of April or early May as they can't take the shock of cold weather as little plants. ​


I planted a lot of snowdrops a year or so ago, but they're not naturalizing as quickly as I'd hoped. I got a variety that is supposed to naturalize well, so fingers crossed that there will be a bumper crop next year. I hope your new ones do well, and that you get to enjoy your established ones soon. My crocuses are up, and I think 4 have been able to bloom. The squirrels are decimating them this year. We have snow now, so it will be interesting to see what happens after it melts this weekend. At least the daffs will be opening soon.

​Next week's temps are all in the 40s and 50s, so things should start popping.​
