September Planting Bargains

September can be a wonderful time for gardening.  The weather’s becoming that little bit cooler, and our thoughts turn towards planning next year’s flowering displays.  Some planting in September and October will set your garden up nicely for a superb display from February onwards.

Why not get out into the garden with a pencil and paper and draw up a wish list for 2017? it’s never too early to think about it.

One of the first things to consider is your choice of spring bulbs.  We’ve come up with a list of our current favourites, all perfect for adding both colour and charm in equal measure.  This entire selection is available to order now, ready to plant out straight away on arrival into pots, containers or straight into the border.  Do any of these catch your eye?
