Sorry for what is probably a really ridiculous question, but when people refer to the term 'in the green', what does it mean please?
I am new to gardening as you may guess...
Thanks in advance.
"in the green" simply means in growth. As opposed to bulbs, shrubs, herbaceous plants being "dormant" .
Welcome Longhead, sorry , forgot my manners
No need to apologize. Many thanks for your answer. It all makes sense now.
Welcome Longhead No problem with asking ridiculous questions here - if you don't ask how will you learn? And it makes us look clever
It wasn't that long ago I was wondering what 'in the green' meant, bulbs always came in bags dormant as far as I knew. Plenty of articles about planting bulbs 'in the green', none took the time to explain what it meant.
Welcome Longhead23, they are good bunch here.
Gardening is full of crazy words. My old dad used to talk about moving things "at the back end" and I always wondered about the back end of what.
