Bulbs in the Green

Bulbs in the Green or ready growing bulbs are an excellent way of planting Snowdrops, Bluebells (Scilla Nutans), Lily of the Valley and Eranthis Hyemalis (Winter Aconites) just where you want them to be, to fill those little empty spaces. Delivered in their growing stage, Bulbs in the Green should be planted on arrival where they will naturalise to provide years of winter and spring colour.

Our bulbs in the green are of the highest quality and will settle in quickly and start to flower the following year.

Bulbs in the green are a unquie collection of bulbs for spring planting. They may be small bulbs but they're hugely important to british wildlife and the country side. Not strictly native, but long established in the woodlands of the UK for centuries. 

Bulbs in the green are autumn planting bulbs that have been planted or lifted from licensed estates in spring when they are actively growing in spring. 

Even if the flowers have passed, the foliage from the bulbs helps establish these little plants in their new surroundings. 

How to plant bulbs in the green

  • Plant Bulbs in the Green during the spring when they arrive with their foliage already emerging.
  • Choose a location with well-drained soil and partial to full sunlight for optimal growth. 
  • Dig a hole deep enough to accommodate the bulbs and their surrounding roots. Gently place the bulbs in the hole, ensuring the soil level matches that of the surrounding garden bed.
  • There is often a white mark on the stem to indicate how deep to plant them (usually 10-15 cm)
  • Enrich the soil with organic matter to provide essential nutrients for the bulbs.
  • Well-draining soil is crucial to prevent waterlogging and encourage healthy root development.
  • Water the bulbs thoroughly after planting to settle the soil and promote root establishment.
  • Maintain consistent moisture, especially during dry spells, to support the bulbs as they transition into the summer flowering stage.

How to care for bulbs in the green

  • Once the flowers have faded, allow the foliage to wither naturally. This process allows the bulbs to store energy for the next growing season. Resist the temptation to remove the foliage prematurely.
  • Bulbs in the Green can be divided after they finish flowering. Lift the clumps, separate the bulbs, and replant them at the appropriate spacing for a refreshed and vibrant display.
  • Leave in the ground and allow the bulbs to naturalise. Eventually creating a carpet of flowers.
  • Divide every 3-4 years

Can Bulbs in the Green be planted in containers?

Bulbs in the Green adapt well to container gardening. Ensure the container has adequate drainage, and choose a quality potting mix for optimal results. Planting in containers will reduce the chances of the bulbs naturalising.

When is the best time to plant Bulbs in the Green?

Plant these bulbs in the spring when they are delivered with their foliage already emerging. Usually between February and early April

Do Bulbs in the Green need full sunlight?

While they can tolerate partial shade, Bulbs in the Green thrive in full sunlight. Many bulbs in the green are woodland bulbs that flower whilst there is no canopy on the trees.
