Sowing & Establishment

How to plant your Wildflower Bulbs ‘in the green’

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

2 – What to expect
These are supplied as pips which are around 5cm long and look like shoots with roots.

3 - Location
Choose a suitable location for the pips to be planted. Lily of the Valley pips are suited to moist soils and prefer partial to fully shaded areas.

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

5 – Depth and Spacing
Plant the pips with any roots pointing down around 7cm deep, leaving around 20cm 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.

8 - Aftercare
Once your flowers have finished flowering, leave them to die back naturally until the leaves turn yellow and then remove them. If required, they can be split up and re-planted in late Autumn.
