Full sun

Gardeners' World - - Bulb Special -

South-fac­ing borders and gar­dens are in full sun for most of the day and any bulb at home in the hot­ter, drier parts of the world will cope well in them. Scil­las, dahlias, glad­i­oli, freesias and cro­cos­mia will all bask hap­pily in your sun­ni­est spots, just check their mois­ture needs as al­though some, like iris, thrive in bak­ing heat, oth­ers may need ex­tra wa­ter­ing to help them cope with the hottest days. Dig in plenty of or­ganic mat­ter and check leaves for mildew and signs of wilt­ing.
