Bulbs for Every Season

Whilst Spring is perhaps the best known season for bulbs, there are bulbs to cater for every taste and every season.

Bulbs look great in containers or borders and they are one of the easiest and most rewarding types of plants to grow. Try sowing them in formal displays or in drifts for a more natural look.

In Spring you'll find Daffodils, Crocuses, Tulips and Hyacinths in abundance. For impact consider Snakes Head Fritillary with its distinctive snakes-skin like markings. Pot grown Spring flowering bulbs can still be found in the garden centre.

Summer bulbs include Freesias, Lilies, Alliums, Crocosmia, Bearded Irises and Gladioli. Summer flowering bulbs can bring drama to your garden with their tall, scented blooms. Often Summer-flowering bulbs can be planted in your garden and left for you to enjoy year after year.

Crocuses, Dahlias, Nerines and Cyclamen come into flower in the Autumn providing that little touch of new colour as the Summer plants are dying back.

Everyone knows that Winter is the time for Snowdrops, but Winter is also the time for another type of Cyclamen and for Winter Aconite.

As a rule of thumb, Spring-flowering varieties are planted from early Autumn, Summer-flowering bulbs from early Spring and Autumn-flowering types from late Spring. However, this depends on their hardiness so always check for guidance on the packaging or ask for advice in the garden centre.

We have a great selection of bulbs to choose from - come in and have a look. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be able to point you in the right direction if you need some advice or help with selecting the right ones for your garden.
