Bulbs

Bulbs aren't just for spring: you can have flowering bulbs in your garden all year round with a little planning. In our garden centre we stock bulbs seasonally, so you'll find spring and summer bulbs on sale in autumn, and late-season bulbs on our shelves from spring. Choose bulbs for every season to enjoy colour from January till December:

Spring: bulbs are first on the scene with a splash of colour so don't stint on quantity: fill your garden with Crocuses, Daffodils, Hyacinths and Tulips from the fantastic range in our garden centre, and double your display by packing them into pots, too.

Summer: it's the turn of the real showstoppers in summer, and in our garden centre you'll find brilliantly-coloured Dahlias, flamboyant Lilies, sophisticated bearded Irises and easy-going pompom Allium bulbs.

Autumn: plant lipstick-pink Nerines for a brilliant splash of colour in September: other autumn bulbs we stock include autumn-flowering saffron Crocus, exotic-looking Gladiolus murielae and brilliant yellow Sternbergia.

Winter: tiny pink Cyclamen coum nod among the earliest Snowdrops, while winter Aconites and tiny, delicate winter-flowering Irises like Iris danfordiae provide a cheery December splash of yellow.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre for more information and advice about using bulbs in your garden.
