WHY CHOOSE ORGANIC BULBS?

No Chemicals. Did you know that 'conventional' bulbs are grown using intensive applications of chemical fertilisers, artificial pest controls and fungicides?

Cut down your tractor miles! Growing these bulbs supports the land they are grown on and the people who work it.

Better, longer lasting bulbs. Not forced, but given time in optimum natural conditions which means they are harvested when they are ready (not the market place) and so they will stay in good condition to bloom for several years so you won't need to replace them next year.

We are delighted to be acting as sole UK agents for these beautiful organic bulb varieties from Holland. Your bulb order will be despatched to customers in late October/early November depending on the right conditions for harvest.

The bulb growers believe that it is possible to practice agriculture without the use of harmful substances and methods if the conditions created by nature are respected. The farm covers 100 acres of land reclaimed from the sea in 1932, 2.5 metres below sea level in the north-west of the Netherlands.

Their farm was converted to biodynamic cultivation in the early 1980s and flower bulbs have been grown since 1993 alongside wheat, potatoes, vegetables and fodder crops. The organic cultivation of flower bulbs differs from conventional production, including growing flower bulbs in a 7 year rotation with other arable crops which prevents many plant diseases.

Your bulbs will come with clear instructions for growing and storing so that you'll get fabulous displays from these high quality, organic bulbs year after year.

Sowing and Usage
Instructions
When to plant For spring colour, plant bulbs from October to December, before the first frosts. How to plant Bulbs are some of the easiest garden plants to grow, needing only a well-drained soil and some sunshine. As a general rule, plant bulbs two to three times their own depth and around two bulb widths apart. It's important to plant bulbs with its top facing upwards. If unsure, plant the bulb on its side. Replace the soil after planting, breaking down any large clumps and firm in gently, making sure there are no air spaces around the bulbs. Bulbs in lawns Naturalise bulbs in lawns by taking a handful and dropping from waist height. Plant where they land with a strong trowel or bulb planter - these are ideal for digging into heavy clay soil. To use, push the cylindrical blade down, twist and pull up a plug of soil. Drop the bulb in, flattest side down, and crumble the plug into the hole. In order to save time, try planting a large number of small bulbs by lifting a piece of turf and planting a group of bulbs in the soil. Bulbs in pots When growing bulbs in a pot, pick a container that is the right size and will complement your chosen bulbs. If you are using a clay pot with a large drainage hole in the base, cover it with a piece of broken pot. Fill pots with general-purpose compost, mixed with a handful of horticultural grit to improve drainage. Water after planting. Aftercare Bulbs in pots need more care than those in soil. Keep the compost moist and protect from frost by wrapping with bubble wrap over winter. You can cover with chicken wire to prevent squirrels, mice and voles from digging them out. Remove it when shoots appear. In the event of shortages we may substitute with a similar variety.
