Plant the summer bulbs in the spring


We all want summer!

Summer bulbs are back. The begonias and the callas. If you plant these bulbs now, you'll have colorful fun all summer long.

Summer bulbs are perfect for adding a touch of color to your borders. They combine easily with existing plants. No risk for the result: in summer the colors blend together, like a painting of wild flowers. © Ibulb

Color at your fingertips

You can do it all with summer bulbs. They are even happy in a jar.

Plant them in the spring. You will then have color at your fingertips:

handy when there are holes here and there in the garden. The potted summer bulbs are also beautiful to add a touch of color to the patio or balcony. Let summer come!

Your own flower garden

In summer, we like to pick flowers. If you now turn a plot of your garden into a flower garden, you will soon be able to make your own bouquets. For this purpose, the most suitable flowers are for examplecrocosmias, dahlias, gladioli and Lily. If you have a preference for field flower bouquets, then be sure to plant a mix of different flower shapes and colors.

You can combine the bulbs by variety, but it is also very nice to combine different flowers.

The border turns into a real spectacle of colors!

Plant in spring, for a wealth of color in summer

You can plant summer bulbs as soon as the night frosts have worn off. Plant them in a sunny location. Bulbs should normally be planted at a depth equal to their height, but there are exceptions.

You will find the exact depth on the packaging. After putting them in the ground, water them to get them started. From July, the first flowers will appear.
