Bulbs – 2018

New for 2018 – we are selling potted bulbs. You can enjoy them in the pot and then plant them in your garden.

We have chosen varieties that are hardy – they will survive in your garden or in pots and most will ‘naturalise’ – they will multiply and get better each year.

Plant in moist but well-drained and fertile soil. After flowering. allow foliage to die back naturally as this will help to feed the bulbs for the following year. It is important that the ground is not too wet when they are dormant otherwise they will rot and not grow again. After a few years, overcrowded clumps can be lifted and divided in the season when the bulbs are dormant.
