Summer Bulbs & Bare Roots
Create brilliant splashes of colour in your garden by planting out your own bulbs and bare roots this spring for a superb summer display. Easy to do, and perfect for pots, beds and borders!
Plant the bulbs with the pointed end facing upwards, so that they are fully submerged in the soil with the shoots just below the surface. Water after planting and keep hydrated when in growth.
Soak the roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting. It's best to plant your bare roots into temporary pots in spring and grow them in a sheltered spot outdoors before planting them out in to borders in late spring.
Plant the roots so that they are fully submerged in the compost with the shoots just below the surface or any top growth exposed. Water after planting and keep hydrated when in growth.
