Here in southern UK Leucojum roseum is an easy bulb for unheated
greenhouse culture, flowering anytime from mid August onwards, a
succession of flowers over a couple of months.  It has survived (only
just!) in a sandy raised bed outside but has not flowered there.
Under glass it sets seed readily and this is a good means of increase.
The green capsules ripen quickly ..... and it pops up in the plunge
and surrounding pots if you don't catch it in time!
