Buying bulbs ‘in the green’
In the green means that the plants are delivered in spring, whilst they are growing.
For some plants it is a much more reliable way of achieving success than planting dry bulbs in the autumn.

Bulbs ‘in the green’ should be planted soon after arrival. If this is not possible maybe because of frozen ground they should be planted into pots.
The bulb should be planted submerged below ground level, with the green foliage exposed above soil level.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
