Last week we looked at the benefits of bulbs and bulbs for the autumn and winter. This week we continue the story.
For late spring and summer.
Summer bulb displays can be not only colourful but exotic.
For us nothing can beat;
Cannas can be a success but they need copious watering to stimulate flowers. If you are a gladioli fan try the more dainty species rather than the large headed varieties. We believe that they fit better into Spanish gardens. If you like to grow the larger flowered varieties for cutting we suggest that you grow a line alongside the vegetable patch.
For the autumn.
Autumn flowering crocuses, the saffron/azafran varieties and the lily related colchicums are the most typical.
For Christmas, winter and early spring.
In the garden patches of crocuses and daffodils can even be out for Christmas and the New Year if planted early in warm areas. In the mountains they will be later. Freesias and tulips will follow.
For the naya and patio plant up pots of amaryllis, cyclamens, hyacinths, grape hyacynths and daffodils.
Some success factors
Once you have experienced a good show of bulbous plants we are sure that you will want to expand them for the following year!
