The first spring bulb flowers are starting to show, and our resident green-fingered gardener Danka gave us some handy tips on growing them.
Flowers like crocuses, daffodils, tulips and hyacinths all grow from bulbs, and they can be planted between September and November. Just be careful to plant them out of reach of children or pets, as they can be poisonous.
Danka’s best tip on spring bulbs – you can keep bulbs flowering the next year by moving them from their pots into garden beds once they’ve finished flowering. By leaving the leaves intact and moving them into fresh soil they can store nutrients for great flowers the next year, you can then move them back into their pots ready for spring.
