Don’t be disappointed hen you go looking to purchase your spring flowering bulbs this year, by going too late.
The displays of bulbs which should be planted during autumn, are arriving into garden centres around the country now.
The choicest and freshest will be the first to sell out, so go now, and in the case of tulips, hang onto them until December to plant, as they will do better when the temperature has dropped low enough to kill the tulip beetle.
But don’t leave it until then to source them, as the best of the varieties will be gone.
