    Versatile and easy-to-grow, these bulbs are often one of the first to bloom in early spring, so it's not unusual to see their flowers emerging through a crust of snow. They are ideal for naturalising, and in time, they can form gorgeous swathes in alpine beds, gravel gardens or lawns. In smaller gardens, they are perfect for the patio, or for filling gaps at the front of the border.

    In each collection you will receive the following:

    50 × Scilla luciliae
    An incredibly pretty, early spring flowering bulb, which produces open sprays of star-shaped, gentian blue flowers amongst the slender, strap-shaped foliage. Grows to 15cm.

    10 × Scilla 'Pink Giant'
    Plant these liberally and you'll love the display of soft pink flowers that appear in early spring. Disease-resistant, easy to grow and very low maintenance, these bulbs can be left in the ground for several years, where they will spread to form a generous swathe. Grows to 15cm.

    20 × Scilla luciliae 'Alba'
    A wonderful addition to pots or windowboxes, it will also flourish in rockeries, gravel gardens or borders. Although it's happiest in a sunny spot, it could also be used to underplant deciduous trees or shrubs, where it will receive all the sun it needs in early spring. Grows to 15cm.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 8-10cm deep and 8-10cm apart in autumn, in clumps or naturalistic drifts where they can remain undisturbed for several years. Deadhead as the flowers fade to prevent self-seeding, or lift and divide congested clusters in summer when fully dormant.

Lily beetle

I would forgive the beautiful lily beetle almost anything apart from eating my lilies! Despite my best efforts, they seem to return year after year at this time to munch irregular holes in leaves, flowers and anything else they can find called lily – actu

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
