Snowdrops are excellent cut flowers to bring indoors – the warmth of interiors intensifies their honey-like fragrance and one can admire them up close instead of crawling on the ground. Here a simple fluted silver bud vase is an elegant vessel for a few stems of Galanthus nivalis. Some gardeners sometimes carefully lift up clumps for temporary container subjects, replanting them as soon as the flowers are spent. An idea is to mold chicken wire into a container, wrap or stuff bark and mosses to conceal the wire, and ‘plant’ the snowdrops.
