    Single snowdrop in the green with pricesBuy lily of the valley onlineMany experts believe that planting snowdrops, aconites and bluebells in-the-green (in their growth phase) provides for the fastest and most successful way of introducing these lovely spring flowers to your garden. We have chosen these commercially grown garden favourites to fill any gaps you might have in your planting scheme. Plant them on receipt to ensure their delicate roots stay moist. This will provide you with stronger bulbs for next year.

    Our lovely Lily of the Valley “pips” are not strictly “in the green” but also need to be planted on receipt. These pips produce fabulously scented flowers and will naturalise easily even in shady areas. To increase their success, plant in pots then plant them out when the leaves are well established. By doing this you will ensure good leaves this year and a host of flowers next spring.

    Many of our experienced customers prefer to plant snowdrops, winter aconites and English bluebells “in-the-green”. This means they are delivered, carefully wrapped to preserve moisture, in full growth with a little soil attached to the bulbs. By planting them in this state you can see exactly where you are putting them and they often establish themselves more quickly. It’s also an extremely useful way to inject flowers quickly into bare spots! They should be planted immediately on delivery and will flower readily. Here are our quick and easy planting tips for a successful show.

    Snowdrops in-the-green arrive either in flower or about to flower. They should be planted around 10-15cm deep in groups of 5 to 9. Snowdrops planted in open ground will naturalise at a quicker pace than those planted in grass.

    Eranthis (Winter Aconites) also arrive in flower or about to flower. They should be planted around 4cm deep in small clumps, in a moist well drained shaded place. When congested lift and separate after flowering.

    English Bluebells arrive before they flower. They should be planted around 8cm deep in a moist well drained sheltered site.
