Alpines and Bulbs

At Glendoick Garden Centre, we pride ourselves on offering a diverse assortment of plants that will bring life and colour to your garden. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting out, our collection of alpines and bulbs is sure to inspire and delight you.

Alpines are a fantastic addition to any garden. These hardy plants are known for their ability to thrive in rocky, mountainous regions, making them perfect for creating stunning rockeries or adding interest to borders. With their vibrant blooms and unique foliage, alpines can transform your outdoor space into a picturesque haven.

Our bulb selection is equally impressive. From daffodils and tulips to hyacinths and crocuses, we offer a wide range of bulbs that will burst into a riot of colours when spring arrives. Plant them in your flower beds or containers, and watch as they bring joy and beauty to your garden year after year.

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.
