Spring Flowering Bulbs in Shrub Border

Traditional Landscape, Newark

Now is the time to plant bare root hedging plants and trees as well as spring bulbs for that wonderful burst of colour following the dark winter days and nights. Your efforts will really pay off next Spring and you will have beds, borders and pots brimming with not only spring colour but also wonderful scent. When planting bulbs in the open ground, with daffodils the most natural method is simply to throw them and plant them where they land. Tulips look good in large groups of 20 plus and also in pots and need to be planted at a deeper depth of about 8 inches below soil level. Daffodils should be around 5-6 inches and crocus about 4 inches. With the different depths, you can have a succession of flowers planted one on top of the other in pots so your Spring containers will look great for many weeks to come.
