Flower Bulbs

Flower Bulbs

The days are already getting shorter, it’s getting colder and most plants in the garden are slowly dying and entering their dormant period. A time when the color brown will dominate in the garden. To enjoy flowers in the garden again as early as possible in the new year, now is the time to plant flower bulbs.

Fall is the perfect time to plant flower bulbs. They not only bring color early in the year but are also very welcome to bees and butterflies. In early spring, there is very little nectar and pollen. By planting spring-flowering bulbous plants, you provide more flowers and release pollen and nectar for these beneficial insects as early as January.

Flower bulbs can actually be planted anywhere in the garden as they are not really picky when it comes to location, although a little sun is nice. Plant them in large groups under trees, among perennials but also in the lawn. The more you plant the greater the effect.

Depending on your personal preference, you can actually combine shapes, colors and heights endlessly. If you like peace then limit the keur or species.

The best-known bulbs are tulips, daffodils and hyacinths but the list is actually immeasurably long. Also consider blue grapes (which also come in white J), crocuses, snowdrops, ornamental onions, imperial crowns and so on. If you choose naturalizing bulbs, they will only become more so over time and you can enjoy them year after year.

It should come as no surprise that we can help you with the advice, delivery and planting of the bulbs.

The planting depth of the bulb depends on the size of the bulb. As a guideline, I usually use 3 times the diameter as the planting depth, so a 5 cm diameter bulb you plant 15 cm deep. Plant the bulb carefully and with the nose (the growing point) facing up. Good luck!
