It might seem early – but now is the time to get planting and here is our guide how to do it.
Take time to plan your bulb planting. The more you think about what you are aiming to achieve in the spring, the better your garden will look when those first flowers open and your garden becomes a kaleidoscope of colour.
Many gardens can look quite stunning with a colour scheme, for examples whites and purples make for a modern, yet feminine look. Yet many gardeners will choose to celebrate the wide range of varieties you can grow with bulbs, vibrant yellows from the daffodils, dazzling reds and oranges from the tulips, elegant purples from the alliums, bright whites from the snowdrops and beautiful pinks from the hyacinths.
Once you have chosen the colours you wish to have in your garden, you can begin to choose the varieties to plant. At Otter Nurseries you can 'pick and mix' your selection. Instead of just buying packets of bulbs you can fill a bag with your favourites.
When you get home it's time to get planting. Bulbs can be placed within your beds and borders to compliment your existing plants. Why not have a go planting around the base of any existing trees. The splash of colour around the trunk really is very eye-catching. If you have a smaller garden, or a patio area, have a go at planting some bulbs within pots and containers.
Don't forget once you have planted your bulbs to plant some attractive autumn bedding plants to give you instant colour. Choose from a great range including, pansies, bellis and wallflowers.
