Looking forward to a colourful spring

Spring might seem a long way off but if you haven’t ordered your bulbs yet, now’s the time to think about it. Amanda has already started her planting – and it promises to make a gorgeous display in a few months.

If you want the maximum colour in your garden, plant the widest possible variety to extend your flowering season from February right though to the end of May.

Thanks to a generous grant, we had an extra big bulb planting session a couple of years ago. It was a lovely opportunity for members of the indoor staff and room guiding team to get involved.
