Growing Bulbs

If you want to create colour year after year, flowering bulbs, corms or tubers are one of the fastest, easiest, most cost-effective ways to create a bright array. Autumn’s the time for planting bulbs that will flower between January and May the following year, such as daffodils, snowdrops, bluebells, tulips, hyacinths and crocus; while spring is the time to plant most summer-flowering bulbs including gladioli, irises, dahlias, nerines, agapanthus and lilies (which can also be planted in autumn). But don’t worry if you miss the main planting season, as many bulbs can be bought growing in pots from one of our garden centres.
