Planting Instructions for 'In The Green' Bulbs: The bulbs should be planted as soon as you receive them. They are best planted where they can be left undisturbed. If the earth is frozen solid, then you’ll need to wait until it is crumbly again. If you do need to wait for a couple of days, sink the bulbs in some damp compost in a sheltered place until the soil is crumbly again.
Planting Instructions for Dry Bulbs: bulbs should be planted in the autumn as soon as received. They are best planted where they can be left undisturbed. Plant with about 10cm of soil above the bulb, so that the soil covering does not dry out during the Spring. If the soil dries out, the plant may not have sufficient moisture to build up the bulb for flowering the following year.
Plant the bulbs as
soon as possible upon receipt.
