March April and May are the best months to plant winter and spring flowering bulbs into the ground or in pots. Most types of bulbs, mass planted under trees or in pots and flower beds create a beautiful display and don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit, you can play to your heart’s content with the colour palette on offer. Sunny yellow Daffodils teamed with drifts of Bluebells look great planted around the base of trees or in borders. The rich red, pink, orange and yellow palette of Ranunculas grouped tightly in rusty old containers give the garden a rustic and romantic cottage feel. Hyacinth bulbs look beautiful planted in the garden but these spring beauties can also be grown indoors using special Hyacinth Jars. The perfume of the Hyacinth flowers is fresh and light and filling the house with lovely fresh perfumed flowers is a great way to dust off any winter blues. In addition, after a long cold winter a bunch of bright sunny Daffodils or crisp white Tulips placed indoors lifts the spirits and provides a glimpse of the spring to come.
Bulbs are very easy to grow, you just have to follow the directions on the packet to ensure you plant them the right way up in the ground and at the right soil depth. When planting add a good handful of fertiliser in each hole, as this promotes longer flowering and healthier bulbs. Recent release Tulip bulbs have been bred for the mild Australian climate and whilst they’ll still need to spend a few weeks in the fridge before planting the results are a tougher and bigger Tulip.
At the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre during March and April we are bursting at the seams with a massive range of these fantastic bulbs. We’ll even throw in a free information booklet on how to layer pots with bulbs and how to get the best looking bulb displays in your garden.
