Autumn Flowering Bulbs
“ Autumn flowering bulbs in full bloom will fill your garden with some of the prettiest flowers in the bulb family ”
As summer gets left behind the days start to shorten and temperatures start to decline. Autumn (fall) is upon us and the arrival of winter is only just around the corner.
Summer plants that have flowered their socks off all season have all but gone and the garden is starting to look a little bare and ragged.
Hanging baskets, patio tubs, troughs and window boxes look decidedly sad and well past their best by date.
Long sunny days filled with glorious aromatic flowers is becoming no more than a mere cherished memory.
Summer bedding plants that have gone over have been removed and the beds look bare with their passing.
So now that summer has past what's to look forward to in your garden?
It's not all doom and gloom……
In fact, some of the loveliest plants now begin to show their true colours.
This time of year has it's own flower show. Many bulbs will flower now giving plenty of colour in what is otherwise just a bare landscape of empty beds being overtaken by unsightly weeds.
Autumn flowering bulbs in full bloom will fill your garden with some of the prettiest flowers in the bulb family.
So it’s really worth growing bulbs that flower this time of year.
And you can pre-plan your planting of bulbs to give you continuous flowering long after the annuals, perennials and biennials have packed their bags and left.
So, your beds, borders, pots, tubs, window boxes and troughs can be filled with riots of beautiful flowering plants even though summer has said goodbye!
Planned correctly and choosing the right bulbs you will have a display that will brighten up any garden.
Grown in patio pots and tubs is an ideal way of adding colour to your garden in autumn.
And the real beauty of pots and tubs is you can easily move them around to get the best arrangements.
Arrange them so you can see them from your windows. There’s nothing better to brighten up your day than the sight of pots and tubs full to the brim of flowering plants on a miserable autumn, fall, day.
