    Summer flowering bulbs have varieties to suit every situation and are guaranteed to fill your garden with colour for months. The blooms are often unusual shapes that add to their beauty and the range of colours to choose from is extensive.

    Planting Time

    Summer bulbs should be planted in spring, when the soil is starting to warm up. Summer bulbs normally like a warm, sunny position.

    Free-draining soil is important as bulbs are susceptible to rotting.

    How to plant

    Dig individual holes for each bulb or a trench for many bulbs. Place bulbs in the holes without pushing down hard. Make sure the growing point is pointing upwards. Cover with soil and firm.

    Many summer bulbs are perfect for growing in patio containers, especially tender species. These can then be lifted in winter and stored.

    Use the bulb as a guide and plant it two or three times its depth. Space them roughly two to three bulb widths apart.

    Lifting and storing

    Most summer bulbs are not hardy so need to be lifted before the first frost. Bulbs generally prefer to be stored dry. Remove loose soil, carefully pull or cut off dead and dying leaves and leave to dry overnight. Dusting with fungicide will help keep the bulbs healthy.
