  • When pondering a planting plan for a park or garden, you can consider various groups of plants such as trees and shrubs, but what about flower bulbs? Flower bulbs are enchanting and just a bit magical. Planted during the last months of the year, they start displaying their quality by emerging and blooming as early as January/February. When the first leaf tips of the snowdrops peek up above ground, you know the gardening season has begun again!

  • During the winter months, parks and gardens look rather lifeless; there’s little color to enjoy. But flower bulbs are soon going to change all that. The energy displayed by flower bulbs as they start emerging so early in the year is sure to cheer you up.
