One of the problems we encountered last year was that snowdrop bulbs did not store very well. This year we have potted them up nice and early, so that they can be growing throughout the winter and be dispatched up to and throughout the flowering period. Everyone loves to see snowdrops in January and February. The first pretty little flowers to push their way up through the winter snow. Here is a picture to show them before transportation, stowed away in recycled boxes.
