Blooming period Fall bulbs

With the heat going on in the country, you probably won’t think about flowerbulbs. But it is already possible to pre-order your Fall bulbs! Did you noticed some gardens always have those beautiful blooming flowers? That is because most Fall bulbs have different blooming periods. This way you can have season round flowers in bloom.

Blooming period

A Tulip for example is a flower which comes in different blooming periods and some of them are also called that way. They exist in Single Early Tulips, Double Early Tulips and Single Late Tulips. The Single Early and Double early Tulips are both early bloomers, but the difference is the flowerpetal. Ofcourse all of the bulbs we offer are blooming in Fall, but they do have different blooming times. We made a list for you with every blooming time of the flower bulbs we sell on our website. This is also described on the website by each flower.

Lasagna planting

Plant the bulbs which will bloom the latest first, so this is the deepest layer. Plant the bulbs which will grow mid-season in the middle layer. Then top it off with the early bloomers. If you use this method, you will always have blooming flowers. For a pot or container: use a broken terracotta pot and layer it on the bottom of your container. This way the water will slower flow away. Or when you have a big pot, use the broken terracotta pot on the bottom and you will need less soild for your container.
