While this is not the time of year to start planting spring flowering bulbs, it is the perfect time to start planning ahead.

  • Before planning ahead, there are a few things you can do to enhance your current flowering performance. Adding a gentle splash of a liquid fertiliser, ideally a flower promoting one, will support your bulbs development.
  • The flower displays you see at this time of year can help you plan out your colour pallet for next year – it allows you to select the bulb varieties you enjoy the most. You should also take the time to simply sit back, relax and enjoy your flowers.
  • There is an opportunity for summer flowering bulbs with plants such as liliums, calla lilies or dahlias. You can find these in garden centres, or online at sites such as Garden Express, who will deliver straight to your doorstep.
  • This is the perfect time of year start planting your summer flowering bulbs – as with your spring bulbs, make sure to give them a liquid fertiliser for an extra boost.
