No gar­den should be with­out the burst of cheer­ful spring colour that bulbs pro­vide. Daf­fodils are the clas­sic spring bulb, but there are so many more to choose from, whether it’s mus­cari, scilla, ipheion, chion­o­doxa, leu­co­jums or a whole range of fab­u­lous frit­il­lar­ies. And now’s the per­fect time to plant them. Pop them in the ground or in pots at three times the depth of the bulb, with the pointed end fac­ing up­wards.

Pre­pare au­tumn and spring pots, start off hardy an­nu­als and di­vide peren­ni­als. Louise Cur­ley helps you plan ahead for many more months of colour to come
