Sowing & Establishment

How to plant your Wildflower Bulbs ‘in the green’

1 – Open up the box
Aim to plant the bulbs as soon as possible upon arrival. If you need to store them, leave the box open and keep them in a cool, dark and dry space with good ventilation, such as a shed or garage.

2 – What to expect
These are supplied as ‘in the green’ which means the bulbs have started the sprouting process and may or may not have a green shoot.

3 - Location
Choose a suitable location for the bulbs to be planted. Giant Snowdrop is suited to moist well-drained soils and prefers sunny or shadier areas.

4 - Planting
Loosen the soil and use our bulb planter to create the hole.

5 – Depth and Spacing
Plant the bulbs with any shoots pointing up around 5cm deep, leaving around 10cm between each bulb.

6 - Shoots
Cover the soil, leaving any green shoots above the ground. Press the soil down firmly and apply water if necessary.

7 - Flowering
Sit back, relax and look forward to beautiful spring flowers! They may not always flower in their first year but will spread and naturalise over time.

8 - Aftercare
Once your flowers have finished flowering, it can be beneficial to remove the spent blooms to concentrate the energy back into the bulb. If required, they can be split up and re-planted in late Autumn.
