Winter/Spring Bulbs are listed from Boxing Day 2017 for delivery from late summer 2018

Bulbs will not be available from the nursery before late February

 

Allium

Arum

Camassia

Dichelostemma

Iris

These are amongst the most beautiful of all winter flowering bulbs. They are easy to grow as long as a few important rules are followed. They need to be planted in a well drained spot which gets all the winter sun. The soil should be prepared well with plenty of dolomite or ground garden lime added as these Iris don’t enjoy excessively acid soils. I plant the bulbs between 12 and 15 cm deep. The soil should be kept dry during summer. Whilst these Iris are beautiful in pots the first year you receive them after that they need to be planted in the garden. None of this will seem too much trouble when you see these jewels flowering on 15cm tall stems during the depths of winter taking frost, wind rain and snow in their stride.

Muscari

Narcissus

Scilla

Tristagma

Triteleia

Tulipa

Triumph Tulips are the kind most often grown for the cut flower trade but they are also amongst the best varieties for planting in the garden and in pots. They carry traditionally shaped tulips on strong stems.

These varieties start to flower later than most tulips and extend the season by an extra two or three weeks.

These bizarre tulips have curling, twisting, fringed, ruffled petals. They do well in the garden and are very popular with flower arrangers and artists.
