Spring Flowering Bulbs

For many gardeners, spring bulbs provide a flowering highlight in the garden.

Planted in containers, in formal garden beds or allowed to naturalise in the garden or lawn they can be used just about anywhere.

They early flowering Galanthus, Acis and Narcissus begin the show, often in late winter, and as spring progresses we have Crocus, Frittillaria, Daffodils and Hyacinths. A little later the Liliums appear and then Alliums, Amaryllis and Arisaema, so many to choose from.

Perhaps the easiest are the daffodils, wonderful yellow flowers in the sun add an instant touch of warmth to any garden in spring. They are hardy and require little care, they also come in a lot more colours than yellow, and don't forget the species.

A huge range of Spring flowering bulbs are available for sale online and by mail order during Fall and Winter and include bulbs such as Tulips, Daffodils and Alliums, all favourites ( see complete list below)

The real trick with planting spring bulbs is to get them into the ground in fall while the soil is still warm. They will put on a little root growth and ready to go as soon as winter passes.

Spring Bulbs to avoid

And those we do not like at all

  • Bluebells, sorry but for us they are an invasive pest and very difficult to control.
  • Siberian squill, it is easy, but with so many better flowering spring bulbs, why waste time.
