Summer Flowering Bulb Collection

Hardy Bulb

This collection includes five of the most popular and colourful summer-flowering bulbs: Allium Shaerocephalon, Ixia Hogarth, Freesia Mixed, Anemone Blanda and Gladioli mix. Plant them amongst perennials for a pop of colour or in borders and patio pots for a bright display. Supplied as bulbs. These bulbs can be planted straight away, but will be fine to plant right through to late April. The bulbs will begin to flower in 10-12 weeks, although it will vary for each variety with the final flowers coming in July to August.

  • Collection includes -
  • Allium sphaerocephalon (120 bulbs) - An understated allium with unusual oval shaped, purple green flower heads, that associates beautifully with swaying grasses. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 8cm (3"). Bulb size 4/5.
  • Ixia Hogarth (95 bulbs) - This South African corn lily has creamy-white flowers with dark purple centres making an unusual addition to sunny borders and containers with its colourful and free flowering display. Bulb size 05+. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 20cm (8").
  • Freesia Mixed (95 bulbs) - A mix of strong solid flower colours for vibrant container displays in the garden or statement cut flower displays in the home. Perfect for growing in patio containers where their fragrance can be appreciated. Alternatively plant freesia corms at the front of a sunny border where you can get up close to that iconic perfume. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 15cm (6").
  • Anemone Blanda (95 bulbs) - Create a spring carpet of delicate flowers in a mixture of pastel tints with these soft Anemone plants. Delightful daisy shaped blooms with a golden eye are carried above soft green dissected leaves. These graceful beauties are ideal for planting through rockeries, borders and alpine troughs. For maximum impact, try naturalising them in drifts through grass or open woodland. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 15cm (6"). Bulb size: 4/5cm.
  • Gladioli mix (20 bulbs) - The hardiest gladioli available! These tough little sword lilies are excellent for planting in groups where they will form large clumps over time. The beautiful hand-painted blooms of hardy Gladioli Mixed are carried on compact stems that won’t need staking, and the loose spikes of bloom make superb cut flowers too. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 15cm (6").
