We love this time of year in the garden centre as it means the arrival of lots of seeds and bulbs to plant for the Spring.

We often get asked at this time of year, “What kind of bulbs can I plant in Spring?” Well, here’s a selection to get you started…

  • Daffodils.
  • Tulips.
  • Narcissus.
  • Alliums.
  • Hyacinths.

And you can find all of these here at Shannons. Once you’ve bought your bulbs, here are some tips as to when and how to plant them:

Begin planting your spring flowering bulbs, corms and tubers between October and December, before the coldest winter weather sets in. You can plant them in containers or straight into borders, but as a rule of thumb, most bulbs should be planted at 3 times their depth.

We’re always happy to give planting advice when asked and so, happy planting!
