Bulb magic

A SPRING flow­er­ing bulb!

Kids Go Gardening - - Front Page -

When the leaves are fall­ing from the trees we know it’s time to plant spring flow­er­ing bulbs. When their beau­ti­ful flow­ers ap­pear we know it’s spring!

When you plant a bulb, it grows roots first and then the leaves soon ap­pear. The roots and shoots grow strongly over win­ter and then, last of all, the flow­ers come out.

Plant some bulbs now and watch what pops up in a few months time. There are loads to choose from, in­clud­ing daf­fodils, tulips in al­most any colour, and sweet smelling hy­acinths.
