Snowdrops & Bluebells "In the Green
from the Clare Bulb Company

Buying English snowdrops and English bluebells in the green is a more reliable way of achieving success  than planting dry bulbs, ie. as one would buy and plant in the autumn. The bulbs we offer are naturally grown and harvested under controlled conditions. We are very adamant that no more than a few days should pass between the lifting of the bulbs, and their arrival at our customers' address. This way the bulbs remain fully viable.
In our opinion the relatively small additional cost of buying bulbs in the green against buying dry bulbs in the autumn is well worth the extra outlay.

Bulbs in the green may be ordered at any time during the year, although they can only be delivered from mid-February until the end of March. Given that in most years there is a limited supply of both snowdrops and bluebells, it is wise to order as early as possible, in that we supply against oldest orders first.
