Caring for Bulbs in the Green

Bulbs in the Green have an established root system and foliage, giving them a better chance to thrive as soon as you plant them. The bulbs are lifted from their beds to order, and packed into bundles to dispatch while they are in leaf and actively growing.

Aconite bulbs are small, so it’s easy for them to dry out in hot, dry conditions. Winter aconite bulbs can be planted in a sunny position or in the dappled shade of deciduous trees. They thrive in moist, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Aconite bulbs should be planted at a depth of 5cm and about 5cm apart.

Planting bulbs In the Green will begin 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 often means you won’t get flowers until the following year, it is a second chance to get your hands on a limited supply of one of the UK’s favourite flowers.
