Time to start thinking about planting!

It’s the right time of year to get moving and think about planting up.

Make sure bulbs are firm especially the necks and base of the bulbs, plant about twice the depth of the bulb .

The ideal position is in well drained soil, in sunny or dappled shade.

Always plant in groups for a good show. Clutches of a few at a time, a handspan of space between each.  Careful regular rows of daffodils may be good for picking, but nothing makes as good a show as banks of colour.

Do not use fresh manure as this may promote basal rot – use blood fish and bone fertiliser or another fertiliser that will have a long term release action.

Good luck with your planting, see if you can get it complete before the first frosts!
