September’s here and that means it’s definitely the time to plant spring flowering bulbs to guarantee glorious colour in your garden come early spring.  Here at Shackletons, we’ve plenty of new bulb varieties in stock and ready to plant, but if you’re new to planting here are a couple of favourites that are hardy and easy to care for.

Try Narcissus Tete-a-tete, the multi-headed, early flowering miniature daffodil, with up to 15 flowers per bulb – gorgeous.

Or the Galanthus Nivalis single snowdrop – very easy to grow and flowers around Feb/March, just when you need signs of new life after the long winter.

Planting spring flowering bulbs is a great way to add an abundance of much needed colour to your garden and it’s really economical to do.  For instance – you can get 25 Galanthus Nivalis bulbs for under a fiver in-store at Shackletons Home & Garden!  And we’ve loads of other varieties to choose from, so what are you waiting for - get planting!
