When it comes to bulbs, it is important to spend time forward thinking and planning, making sure that you’re picking the right bulbs for your garden.

  • The elegant, colourful nerines grow well in shaded areas of a garden. If you have trees or tall shrubs with a canopy, you can plant this underneath them.
  • If you love colourful, fragrant plants, freesias are the plant for you. They come in a huge variety of colours, ranging from pastels to vivid reds and purples, and are quite drought tolerant.
  • The bearded iris is a resilient bulb, and can be planted in full sun amongst other perennials. You can grow them amongst other plants as a tall accent in the garden.
  • Tulips love the sun, coming in a lot of colours and patterns. They have strong stems, making them great cut flowers.
  • Daffodils, the king of all bulbs, are easy to grow. With very little effort, you’ll be rewarded with vibrant flowers, making them great to display around the house.
