Now is the time: Planting Spring-Flowering Bulbs

As autumn settles in, it's the perfect time to start thinking about your garden's springtime display. Planting bulbs from now until December may seem like a leap into the future, but it's a strategic move that promises a garden full of vibrant colours when spring arrives. The cooler, moist soil and milder temperatures of autumn create an ideal environment for bulb planting. During this time, bulbs establish their root systems, allowing them to burst forth with breathtaking blooms in the coming season.

Elmwood's Top 3 Spring Flowering Bulbs

At Elmwood Nursery & Garden Centre, we take pride in offering a selection of top-quality spring-flowering bulbs that will transform your garden into a springtime paradise. Here are our top three spring-flowering bulb recommendations:

  1. Daffodils (Narcissus): Daffodils are iconic spring bloomers, known for their cheerful yellow, white, or orange flowers. Plant these bulbs in autumn, and you'll be greeted with a burst of colour from late winter to early spring, depending on the variety.
  2. Tulips (Tulipa): Tulips are synonymous with spring beauty and come in a dazzling array of colours and shapes. Depending on the variety, tulips can bloom from early to late spring, creating a stunning display that can last for weeks.
  3. Crocuses (Crocus): Crocuses are among the first flowers to appear in spring, often pushing through the snow. These petite bulbs offer vibrant purple, yellow, or white blossoms and add a delightful touch of early-season colour to your garden.

Planting these bulbs in autumn ensures that they have ample time to establish their root systems before the ground freezes. This allows them to bloom at their best when spring arrives, providing a much-needed burst of colour after the long winter months.
