A SPRING flowering bulb!
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.
