Bulbs

Autumn is the best time to plant bulbs. Bulbs can be planted between perennials in the flower beds. Consider flower colour, plant height and the amount of leaves. When properly chosen, bulbs add value to a flower bed filled with colour. Those might be conventional bulbs, such as tulips and daffodils, but also a flower bed with naturalising bulbs are an asset to your garden. These naturalising bulbs bloom in early spring and their quality does not diminish, in fact they will multiply. In early spring (February / April), when there usually is not a lot of colour in a flower bed, naturalising bulbs can provide just that. Examples include: Anemone blanda, Scilla Siberica, Muscari, Crocus, Galanthus, Chionodoxa, Fritillaria, Irises, etc. Of course there are also less well-known bulbs that bloom later in the season. Examples include: Allium species, Fritillaria species, Eremurus, Leucojum, Puschkinia, Arum, Camassia and Calla. Of course there are also less well-known bulbs that bloom later in the season.
