Growing flowers from bulbs

Most of my bulb plants from last year began popping up since mid-February in a kaleidoscope of colours.

Amaryllis, Crocus, Gladiolus, Caladiums and Oxalis are blooming in colours of Yellow, Red, White, Pink, Orange, Burgundy and Fuchsia. Some are even in two tones with hummingbirds, butterflies and bees dancing and buzzing around the flowers and blossoms.

Today I received a box of Mardi Gras Mixed Gladiolus which are grown for cut flowers. I have planted out my new bulbs and wait to see these new blooms.

The Dutch have mastered the art of growing bulbs. Every year they produce new varieties of bulbs in exciting colours. Their flower shows are fantastic and breathtaking and this year should be no different. They are famous for growing large fields of bulb plants for the cut flower industry which they export. Among the many varieties of cut flowers they grow Tulips remain their number one. Now is the time to start planting out your bulb plants and new seeds.  Enjoy them as they come into bloom.

Until next week, Happy Gardening.
