Lift clumps of snowdrops now to increase your collection and spread them to other parts of your garden.

1. DIG AROUND THEM Dig around clumps when they’ve finished flowering, but only do it if the ground isn’t frozen or waterlogged.

2. LIFT THEM CAREFULLY Gently lift the clump from the soil and tease it apart with your hands to make smaller sections.

3. REPLANT THE DIVISIONS Dig holes for the new clumps and fork over the base to release any compaction. Replant each smaller clump at the same depth they were at before. Firm in place and water.
