PLANT A MAG­I­CAL SPRING

Go Gardening - - Nature's Planting Time -

Don’t miss out on your favourites as the new sea­son’s spring flow­er­ing bulbs rock into store ready for the au­tumn plant­ing sea­son. Cold sea­son bulbs such as tulips can be pur­chased early and treated to an ex­tra chill for 8 weeks in the fridge for peak flow­er­ing per­for­mance. Also ready for plant­ing are beau­ti­ful florist-grade anemones, ra­nun­cu­lus, freesias, and hy­acinths. There are daf­fodils aplenty for fill­ing pots or mass plant­ing un­der de­cid­u­ous trees. Add blue­bells and snow­drops to com­plete the pic­ture.
