What are spring bulbs?
Spring bulbs are flowers that bloom from mid-February to mid-May. To make sure spring bulbs bloom beautifully and grow healthy, you should plant them in autumn. In autumn, the ground is still warm, and the bulbs will get enough watering from the rainfall. If you order bulbs from our webshop, try to plant the bulbs in the ground as soon as possible. Bulbs need to strengthen and exposure to chilling temperatures will make them stronger and break their winter dormancy. What to do when you forget to plant spring bulbs in autumn, and the soil is frozen at the moment? You can grow your tubes in a container. Springtime is definitely the season to bring pastel colours to your garden and your house. At Ripley Nurseries, we offer various types of spring bulbs. Make your choice and add a splash of colour to your garden.
