Seeds and Bulbs

Bulbs from Taylors

Taylors are a thriving family business with daffodils grown for the UK and Irish market on their farm in Holbeach, Lincolnshire.

Planting Spring Bulbs In Autumn,

from August Onwards, Spring flowering bulbs come into stock. 

Colchicum (autumn crocus), Crocus, Snowdrops and aconites should be planted as early as possible as they start growing in Autumn and flower in winter.

Prepared Hyacinths should be planted by the end of September to get flowers around Christmas and New Year.

Tulips and Daffodils are best planted in October and even November. They can be kept in a cool dry place till you are ready to plant. Glendoick sell loose daffs and tulips so you can see and feel the quality. You can also mix as many varieties as you like in a bag.

Amaryllis Gift Boxes for Christmas will be available in September.

Planting Summer Flowering Bulbs In Late Winter

Summer flowering bulbs arrive in store in February. Some of these are not hardy so don't plant them too early, and make sure they have a mulch on top of them if you are in a cold inland garden. Lillies are very tough and you dont need to worry too much about them.
