Do you want to enjoy an extra colorful garden next spring? Then it is time to plant flower bulbs, because the first real frost has not yet shown itself. Here you will find the perfect combination of flower bulbs to enjoy color in the garden every month next year.
When to plant?
You can plant those spring-flowering bulbs in the garden before the first frost has occurred. The best period for this is from September to December. As long as there has been no night frost, you can still plant flower bulbs even in December. In any case, avoid planting flower bulbs during a period of frost or with extremely wet soil, because then the risk of the flower bulbs freezing or rotting is too great. Would be a shame!
What to plant?
To enjoy flowers in the garden early in the year, you can plant different types of spring bulbs. For example, snowdrops and winter aconites already grow in January. In February you can then enjoy crocuses, followed by daffodils in March. In April you can enjoy extra color, because many bulbs then bloom: tulips, hyacinths, fritillarias and grape hyacinths are then added to the list. In May, the Allium varieties are added.
Most spring bulbs have probably finished flowering in June, but then the perennials are in bloom. With the right combination you can enjoy a green and colorful garden all year round.
