Nat­u­ralised bulbs

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

Bulbs that have been nat­u­ralised in a lawn shouldn’t be lifted.

If left in place, the bulbs will grow and the plants will mul­ti­ply, giv­ing a bet­ter show in fol­low­ing years.

Leave their fo­liage in­tact and if they are grow­ing in a lawn, wait un­til it dies back com­pletely be­fore mow­ing over them.

The leaves re­turn en­ergy to the bulbs, caus­ing them to grow with im­proved flow­er­ing.

Leave snake’s head frit­il­lary bulbs in place and they will mul­ti­ply.
