Winter Aconite Rhizomes
Latin: Eranthis hyemalis/cilicica
Distribution: This is native to
Europe and has been widely naturalised throughout Britain.
Planting Instructions for 'In the Green' Rhizomes: The rhizomes 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 rhizomes in some damp compost in a sheltered place until the soil is crumbly again.
Planting Instructions for Rhizomes: The rhizomes should be planted in the autumn as soon as received. They are best planted where they can be left undisturbed. Plant with about 8cm of soil above the rhizome, so that the soil covering does not dry out during the Spring.
Plant the bulbs as soon as possible upon receipt.
These bulbs were grown in Britain from cultivated stock.
