Lily
Although we often associate bulbs with the signs of spring as robust snowdrops and crocuses push their way through the ground after the hard winter frosts, bulbs planted in the spring can add pops of colour and height to an herbaceous summer border.
The Garden Centre stocks a large range of bulbs perfect for planting out in the garden or popping in planters and containers for patio interest.

Lily
Their striking trumpet heads and strong perfume make lilies a great addition to any summer border, available in a variety of shades the cluster of flowers add dramatic blocks of colour and are perfect for floral arrangements too.
