Bulbs are great if you wish for quick flowering in woodland and shaded areas, as they reach flowering quicker than seed which is slower to establish in such situations. They can also be used in open areas just as well. In fact the fragrant Wild Tulip flowers better in the open than under shade.
Bulbs are easy to handle and will come with simple planting instructions. Note that many bulbs need to settle in once planted and so not all will flower in their first year but all should from their second year. They will multiply in number each year too.
In the table below I have indicated the flowering period for each of the species so you can create non-stop flowering through winter, spring and summer using my bulbs. I also indicate the period they are available before they sprout and become part of my ‘in leaf/sprouting bulbs’ which are more expensive due to the care of handling and packing required before posting out.

To purchase a quantity of these bulbs please select the desired species in the drop down box at the base of this page and click the ‘Add to Basket’ button. If different species packs are required please add each to the shopping basket one at a time.
