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 in Sherington, Newport Pagnell 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. A list of Spring Flowering Bulbs can be found here, and details of how to force them can be found here.
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 Sherington, Newport Pagnell garden centre for more information and advice about using bulbs in your garden.
