Planting bulbs from September to December, before the first winter frost sets in, will result in a beautiful, colourful garden come spring time.
Daffodils, Tulips, Crocus, Hyacinths, Lily of the Valley, Bluebells, Puschkinia and Fritillarias can all be planted at this time of year.
Bulbs are some of the easiest garden plants to grow, needing only a well-drained soil and a bit of sunshine.
As a general rule, plant bulbs two to three times their own depth and around two bulb widths apart.
Always plant bulbs with the top of the bulb facing upwards.
Replace the soil around the bulbs after planting, breaking down any large clumps. Press the soil in gently around the bulbs.
When growing bulbs in a pot, pick a container that is the right size and will complement your chosen bulbs.
