Get ahead and plant these spring flowering bulbs this autumn for a brilliant display of blooms next year.
Before you get planting, be sure there’s the perfect spot ready to suit the plants as some bulbs need a specific home.
Most hardy bulbs like daffodils and tulips like a warm and sunny spot with good drainage, and those plants that are from cooler habitats need to be grown in similar conditions. Before planting, improve light, sandy soils with garden compost and add compost and grit to heavier soils.
For a colourful spectacle, planting groups of 6 more bulbs, is a great idea and when they bloom next year, it’ll be a welcome display.
So, get planting your bulbs this autumn to have dramatic displays in spring and summer. Without a doubt, these plants will add something special to your garden, and they’ll be worth the wait!
