Growing Wild Garlic Bulbs in the Green

Wild Garlic Bulbs love moist, well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. They will be happy in almost any soil, and will naturalise, but it is not drought-tolerant so avoid planting in dry areas of the garden. Wild garlic can thrive in either full sun, dappled shade or woodland settings.

Bulbs in the Green have an established root system and foliage, giving them a better chance to thrive straight away. They are lifted from their beds to order, and packed into bundles to dispatch while they are in leaf and actively growing.

Planting Bulbs In the Green begins in February. It is often more reliable to plant actively growing small bulbs, this reduces the risk of them either drying out or getting too wet. When they have foliage we know that it is a successful plant, although planting bulbs in the green sometimes means you won’t get flowers until the following year, it is a second chance to get your hands on your favourite flowers.
