What are Bulbs in the Green?

Bulbs in the green 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.
