Spring bulbs you need to plant now

Spring bulbs you need to plant now

As autumn arrives, it's time to start thinking about spring flowers! Plant spring-flowering bulbs now, and you'll have a fantastic display of colour early next year. Here are our top 10 favourite spring-flowering bulbs.

Ten spring-flowering bulbs

  1. Daffodils (Narcissus) are one of the most popular and easy-to-grow spring bulbs, and there's an incredible variety of different flowers to suit all tastes. Depending on the type you choose, you can have flowers any time from late winter to late spring. Daffodils do best in full sun and well-drained soil.

  2. Tulips are a splash of vibrant colour in spring. Ranging from dwarf Tulip' Little Beauty' to statuesque Tulip' Queen of Night', there are tulips to suit all garden sizes, and they're great for pots too. Tulips are very easy to grow, preferring a sunny spot and well-drained soil.

  3. Crocuses are one of the first signs of spring, cheering up cold grey days with their small goblet-shaped flowers in bright colours. They're ideal for pots and also look lovely naturalised on a lawn. Crocuses love the sun and well-drained soil.

  4. Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) flower in late winter, a welcome sign that spring is on its way. These delicate white nodding flowers with green markings are happy growing under deciduous trees or shrubs where they will get sun in early spring before the leaves appear.

  5. Hyacinths (Hyacinthus orientalis) are loved for their beautiful fragrance and have gorgeous colours. They look superb in pots near the house or planted along the edge of a path so you can appreciate the fragrance as you pass.
