Snowdrop flowers, like daffodil flowers, are often attacked during mild spells by snails. They feed at night and hide by day, although sometimes a small snail can be found tucked into a daffodil flower. Usually there is good cover nearby the damaged clump to allow the snails to hide, while clumps in the open may be unharmed.
