Plant Bulbs for Spring Colour

If you are thinking of putting your property on the market in Spring, it is a good idea to plan ahead for some colour in the garden. Autumn is an excellent time to plant flowering bulbs which will add splashes of colour and warmth, making your garden more attractive to potential buyers in Spring.

Here are some ideas for adding colour.

  • Mix varieties of tulips together for varying height, colour and form
  • Plant tulip bulbs among wallflowers in coordinating or contrasting colours
  • Dainty fritillaries are a delightful addition, especially the snake’s head fritillary with its distinctive petals of pink checkerboard pattern
  • Place pots of Spring bulbs in prominent places for maximum effect. Pots of bulb displays can be taken with you when you move
  • Try mixing pastel colours together, or dark reds, oranges and purples
  • The bright yellows and whites of Narcissus (daffodils) are the epitome of spring colour and never fail to liven up corners of the garden
  • Crocus and Iris reticulata bring colour as early as February but lack height, so need to be positioned where they can be well seen
  • Majestic purple alliums add height and brighten up any border in late Spring
