Bulbs (the flowering variety)

Flowering bulbs are a wonderful addition to any garden, and can be grown in beds or pots. Plant your flowering bulbs in Autumn for a Spring showing.

Plant bulbs pointy side up. (Don’t panic if you can’t work out which is the pointy bit – the seedling will turn itself up the right way eventually). Dig a hole twice the length of the bulb, and plant bulbs the same distance apart.

When the bulb is finished flowering allow the stalk to die naturally.  You can tie the foliage or hide it if you wish.

When the bulbs are dormant you can dig them up and separate them, or leave them in the ground. They will grow again. Eventually you will need to pull them up and thin them out.
