Don't Mow Snowdrops in the Grass

Posted on

Snowdrops look lovely naturalised in the lawn but there comes a point in spring when we are thinking of getting the lawn mower out. The snowdrops have faded and the lawn needs its first mow of the season. 

Can you mow the lawn and Snowdrops? 

No. Not unsurprisingly,  Snowdrop aftercare is similar to Daffodils and other spring bulbs, they need the leaves to remain in place for a number of weeks to feed to bulbs for next year.  Until later in the year, around  March it is necessary to mow around the fading leaves. Once the leaves are finished and yellow you can mow over them.

Tips about how to grow snowdrops and planting snowdrops in the green.
