Galanthomania in the US - related
Sun, 26 Feb 2012 11:03:49 PST

I love galanthus - not to the extreme of buying one for $50 - but enough to have a few different ones which please me each spring. Most are in peak bloom here in S outheastern Pennsylvania right now. I am wondering if they or any of the genus  could survive in a raised bed. As I age, the possibility of getting down close enough to the ground to smell their fragrance and see the variations in the green markings. etc. will become less of an option. Has anyone grown them in raised beds? Here in zone 6/ 7,  temps rarely even get below 0 F these days.
