Bulbs to buy now

Amateur Gardening - - Gardening News -

As well as tulips and daf­fodils, cro­cus, al­li­ums, Alpine spring bulbs such as chion­o­doxa and Iris retic­u­lata are now avail­able, but may be in short sup­ply later on.

Na­tive blue­bells and snow­drops may also be hard to come by as grow­ers are find­ing it hard go­ing lift­ing the bulbs from the hard ground.

Al­though sup­pli­ers say there will still be some bulbs left in a month’s time, some spe­cialty va­ri­eties won’t be able to be re­stocked.

There are also fears that two years of ad­verse con­di­tions may af­fect the avail­abil­ity and price of bulbs in years to come.

Na­tive blue­bells can’t be lifted from hard, dry ground

Al­li­ums are at risk, too
