Eranthis Hyemalis

Our Aconites in the Green are grown in the UK specifically for the purpose of being lifted and sold as bulbs in the green. Winter Aconites, Eranthis Hyemalis, are one of the earliest flowering British bulbs forming a carpet of waxy, golden buttercup-like flowers from January onwards. Along with snowdrops, aconites are one of the earliest plants to flower, performing best when grown in moist ground containing plenty of organic matter.

Buying bulbs in the green means you receive identifiable plants that are freshly lifted. A few species of bulb, also including bluebells and snowdrops establish best when they are transplanted quickly either while still in growth or when their foliage has freshly died back. This ensures the bulbs are moist which helps them establish more rapidly when they come into growth again. To this extent, "in the green" is a misnomer as the foliage can be yellow and shrivelled - this has no adverse effect on the viability on the bulbs.

Every silver spoon has a cloud however and the downside of buying aconites in the green is that they really do need to be planted as quickly as possible after being lifted as their foliage is perishable and deteriorates rapidly after a few days. We, therefore, restrict our shipping dates in February to April to weeks when the weather means your aconites can be lifted immediately before despatch and are posted so that arrive with you on a Thursday or Friday in time for planting that week-end.

If this appeals to you then you might like to take a look at the rest of our range of bulbs in the green.
