Many of our gardens have areas of shade particularly under trees and it can be difficult to get plants to grow in such situations.

Some (not all) spring flowering bulbs thrive in such situations, particularly under deciduous trees which are bare during the winter.

The bubs get all the winter sunlight that they need to bloom during the spring and then they are protected by the leaf canopy, creating the heavy shade that they need during the summer months.

I have put together a collection of my favourite bulbs for shady areas below. So whether you have a woodland garden or just an area of your garden which is in shade these will bring colour and joy during springtime

I don't recommend planting in areas that are in constant shade beneath evergreen shrubs such as Conifers or Laurel as very little if anything will grow beneath such plants

Spring Flowering Bulbs are Available to Pre-Order NOW for Delivery commencing September 2022

Save Money on your Spring Flowering Bulbs by ordering NOW

I take my lead on delivery. directly from the bulb growers, it varies each year as to when they are ready.

I wait until the grower says they are good to go, I am not pressured by when the supermarkets and garden centres have their bulbs available.

If we ship too early the bulbs may not be ready and will then rot.

If they are planted too early in the season then they won't flower at the right time in spring so please be patient, we have to work with Nature on this.

That being said, delivery will commence at some point in Septmeber with the bulk of orders being delivered during October

Spring bulbs vary in cost depending on the time of year. Ordering early in the year means that I can supply them at a better price. These will become more expensive as we get closer to the autumn.

In short, by pre-ordering spring flowering bulbs,

  • we save money and
  • have a better range to choose from
