Plant now, enjoy later

Who wouldn't love to have a lush flower garden like the ones designed by landscape architect Piet Oudolf? But green fingers aren't a prerequisite to having a wonderful, flower-filled garden: planting a bag of flower bulbs is easy.

After waiting a few months, your customers will be enjoying a lush display of colourful flowers in their garden or a cheerful flower box on their balcony in spring. Which bulbs would you recommend to them?

Anemone blanda Blue Shades

Anemone blanda 'Blue Shades', or winter windflower, has unique violet-blue petals surrounding a pale yellow centre. Its specific epithet, blanda, was an apt choice since this is Latin for 'alluring'. The flower's many narrow petals make it resemble a daisy but then a more subtle version. Over the years, the plants increase in number to create a stunning carpet of flowers every spring.


Narcissus Replete

They might very well be the ultimate messenger of spring: daffodils. Often, these yellow flowers provide a somewhat bare garden with its first colourful accents. And even though they're a frequent springtime sight, daffodils are not necessarily an obvious choice for customers. The Narcissus 'Replete' is a fully double-flowering daffodil, making it such an elegant and unique spring flower. Its ivory outer petals combined with peachy-pink ruffles in the centre make it truly extraordinary: a definite eye-catcher in the spring garden.

Allium caeruleum

The spherical, heavenly blue inflorescence of Allium caeruleum (in English also known as blue-flowered garlic) is guaranteed to catch the eye. Look closer, and its many star-shaped florets add a truly refined touch. Not only will the gardener enjoy this flower, but so will the bees.
