Bulbs aren't just for spring: you can have flowering bulbs in your garden all year round with a little planning. In our garden centre we stock bulbs seasonally, so you'll find spring and summer bulbs on sale in autumn, and late-season bulbs on our shelves in Trowbridge - Wiltshire from spring. Choose bulbs for every season to enjoy colour from January till December:
Bulbs seasons Flower bulbs not only give the garden color during the spring. With summer flowering bulbs you can create a beautiful colorful summer garden. Summer flowering bulbs are easy to combine with permanent garden plants and shrubs. They are cheap and maintenance friendly. The flower bulbs below are suitable for the following seasons
- Spring: bulbs are first on the scene with a splash of colour so don't stint on quantity: fill your garden with crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths and tulips from the fantastic range in our garden centre, and double your display by packing them into pots, too.
- Summer: it's the turn of the real showstoppers in summer, and in our garden centre you'll find brilliantly-coloured dahlias, flamboyant lilies, sophisticated bearded irises and easy-going pompom allium bulbs.
- Autumn: plant lipstick-pink nerines for a brilliant splash of colour in September: other autumn bulbs we stock include autumn-flowering saffron crocus, exotic-looking Gladiolus murielae and brilliant yellow Sternbergia.
- Winter: tiny pink Cyclamen coum nod among the earliest snowdrops, while winter aconites and tiny, delicate winter-flowering irises like Iris danfordiae provide a cheery December splash of yellow.

Bulbs are available in many different types and sizes. There are even so many that there are too many to mention. But which flower bulbs are best known and are used the most? One of the most popular bulb is the Tulip! Colors as yellow, red, pink, purple and orange, a round shape or with serrated petals: the Tulip has multiple manifestations and offers something for everyone.
Tulips left in the ground will sometimes re-flower, but more often they'll dwindle and disappear. You can replant with new combinations – but if you've got a really good display going, it's also possible to persuade the same Tulips to come back next season. In our garden centre you'll also find species Tulips – smaller, wilder-looking Tulips which come back year after year so you won't need to lift them. Good ones to try are Tulipa turkestanica, appearing in early spring with up to nine flowers per spike; Tulipa greigii 'Red Riding Hood', 20cm high and scarlet in April; and Tulipa sprengeri, the last of the tulips to flower in late May, again bright scarlet.
You can find more information about our Tulip bulbs on the page ‘Tulips that last’.
