Just thought I would let everyone know that spring bulbs have arrived at Homebase today! So if you want to get planting early or want to force some Daff bulbs inside for winter now is the time to do it
Hi Matt, Saw spring bulbs too in Wilkos & B&M yesterday. Wilkos mixed daff bulbs were £3.50 for about 3 Kg I think.
I'm still waiting for my scabious to produce even one flower and cosmos could be doing a bit better as well I do love Spring bulbs though
Some of my cosmos have produced no flowers at all and are extremely leggy in the ground(to the point where the wind has blown them over) So they are coming out tomorrow as I've had a gutsful of them. Is it too early to be getting spring bulbs in the ground or do you think I should wait a bit?
Daffodils/hyacinths /narcissus fine to go in now-tulips wait until October/November
Or even later with the tulips - mine usually go in in December.
What about Iris/crocus etc?
Yes-anything that is in the shop- is better in the ground than in the shop-but there is plenty of time.
I guess i'll wait about 6 weeks then get them in
Mattbeer87- Some of my Cosmos have started to flower the others are very lush with flower buds developing so I'm holding on to mine. They did need to be stacked today I feel exactly like you about my Scabious however- but I'm just going to leave them where they are and see if I get one full bloom out of them. Ever optimistic
I thought too that the bulbs were slightly earlier in the shops this year but these type of shops are very up to date & seasonal in what they sell.
