Transplanting Snowdrops

Galanthus nivalis is one of my favorite perennials- perhaps it's so easy to end up with lots and lots of them and they bloom so early. I simply go out when they are in bloom, dig up clumps and stick little bunches of bulbs here and there- they are even OK in a lawn- especially when you can avoid mowing real early in the spring: in other words, where the grass is a little thin- they seem to like rich moist areas.
