  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April / May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In each of these collections you will receive the following bulbs.

    10 x Fritillaria meleagris
    Pretty, pendent, white and pinkish-purple bells with distinctive checkerboard markings on slender stems in April and May. These delightful snake's head fritillaries are perfect for naturalising in a moist woodland edge or wildflower garden. It's essential to select a site where the soil remains moist in summer. Grows to 30cm tall.

    25 x Muscari latifolium
    This is such a great little plant that in summer 2005 it was voted as the International Flower Bulb Centre's official bulb of the year. The bottom two thirds of the flowers are coloured a very dark blue and appear near black in certain lights. Each spike is topped by a tuft of striking bright blue flowers giving it a two-tone effect. Its leaves are broader and flatter than most other grape hyacinths and they tend to wrap themselves around the stem of each flower rather than just jut up. It is a small plant that packs a big punch when planted in big, naturalistic drifts. Mix it with other spring flowers in an orchard or meadow - try planting it with the hoop petticoat daffodil for great colour contrast. Alternatively cram loads into a pot and place it on a sunny patio. Grows to 15cm tall.

    10 x Narcissus 'Thalia'
    A multi-headed trumpet daffodil that emerges from its bud a greeny-white and opens to reveal a delightful, pure white flower that looks really good planted in big swathes. This is quite an old variety that was a firm favourite of the Victorians. It went out of favour for several years as the newer varieties had bigger flowers or bolder colours. Happily though, this gem is now enjoying a renaissance due to its simple, under-stated elegance. Grows to 40cm tall.



  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.

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
