Beautiful Bulbs

Date

Bulbs add a special season bonus to any garden, and probably the best known are beautiful spring flowering bulbs which herald the end of winter.

Surely one of nature′s simplest creations, bulbs are also extremely versatile − not only do they provide beautiful flowers, they can also be used as ground cover, be naturalised in grass, and add tall accents to the border.

And there are so many to choose from that we thought it would be useful to put together some information on the most popular bulbs you can plant this autumn.
