Summer Flowering Bulbs - Plant In Spring

Bulbs make a fine display planted in containers or borders. They are one of the easiest and most rewarding garden plants to grow.

How to plant bulbs

Plant as soon as possible. They may flower poorly following later than recommended planting or after lengthy storage.

If planting in borders, aim to plant in groups of at least six, as the more bulbs that are grouped together, the better the display. Most bulbs are ideal for growing in containers, but this especially suits those with large, showy flowers, such as tulips, lilies, arum lilies and alliums.

Spring Flowering Bulbs - Autumn Planting Bulbs

Spring flowering bulbs  are planted in the autumn so that they flower in the following spring and early summer. They are often referred to as Autumn planting bulbs.

Taking time to plant bulbs in autumn will result in beautiful colour, signalling the start of the new season, that lasts for months.  Plant your bulbs in autumn and they will produce glorious colour from late winter into early summer.
