What are Bulbs in the Green?

In the Green Collection are actively growing flower bulbs, they are usually planted in autumn as a dormant bulb. Many small bulbs can struggle over winter, not because of the cold but because the bulbs have been out of the ground for a long time, so it can be more successful to buy them in spring. As bulbs in the green, the root system and foliage have developed, giving them a better chance to thrive straight away. By buying our In the Green Collection you are purchasing bulbs that have survived the dormant period.

Caring for your In the Green Collection

Do not leave the bulbs in the bags for too long, try to plant them within a couple of days of receiving them. Make sure the box is open and there is air flow to each pack we send, this is especially important later in spring when the weather begins to warm up.

The trick for most bulbs is keeping them moist, but not water logged. Soil allows a small amount of air around the bulb to prevent them from rotting. The residual moisture in the soil keeps them from drying out.

After planting, your snowdrops in the green will need watering well, as they will have lost quite a lot of moisture between lifting and planting. They won’t need to be fed when you plant them, although it can be beneficial when the flowers have finished, to give the new bulbs a better chance to gather nutrients before they become dormant.

The foliage is hardy, and spring bulbs can withstand the cold weather, so don’t worry about frosts.
