Forcing bulbs

The joy of watching bulbs grow roots is a fascinating experience. There’s something touching about seeing every step of growth. Their delicate white roots, the first signs of green shoots; it’s wonderfully uplifting in the dark days of winter.

“It is extraordinary just how much they grow each day.”

Bulb planting in Autumn

In preparation for our planned 2024 garden open days, we have been very busy dodging the rain and furiously planting thousands of perennial and species bulbs. Our main interest is around planting bulbs to grow and flower in grassland areas. This connects with our regenerative successional planting approach giving a wonderful January to May layered affect.

“It’s that wonderful feeling of planting something that will make the garden burst into life in spring.”
