Thank you for the video. It is always nice to take walk in your garden. :)
You said in the video that you can increase snowdrops by planting them in a pot where they make small bulbs quickly. Can you tell more about that, it sounds like something I would like to try.
You said poor soil, do you mean like sandy soil? Is there a difference if the pot is small or bigger and how deep you plant the bulb? How long does it take to get a potful of small bulbs like you had?

Thank you Leena

I discover this method through mistakes I made when I first started growing bulbs when I did not plant them deep enough and or kept them too dry the bulbs reaction was to break down into many smaller bulbs so I have turned this to my advantage.
To quote from Bulb Log 0420

'A few years ago I intentionally planted some Galanthus bulbs too near the surface of small pots to put them under stress resulting in the single large bulb breaking down into several small ones then I have spent the next two years growing them well to get them back to flowering size.

Thanks Ian!
I must have read it year ago because I remember those Eranthis pinnatifida pictures and writing  :).
I will try it with some snowdrops which increase very slowly. :)

What's in the trees at 1.45-1.52? Witch's broom or mistletoe?
