Ah, summer. With the right summer bulb collection, you'll have a riot of colour from deep reds to delicate pinks and bright yellows. They will smell heavenly, especially on those moonlit strolls through your garden. The buzzing of the bees and maybe even a hummingbird or two will be music to your ears. With our beautiful summer bulb collections, it's easy to find a selection that will perfectly compliment your landscape.
The cultivars in our Dutch summer bulb collections are carefully selected to enjoy the same planting conditions, so all you need to consider is the area in which you'll be planting. Choose your collection based on hardiness zone, sun exposure and soil type. Next, consider the type of garden you want. Pastel blooms, feathery textures and sweet fragrances make a lovely cottage garden. Fill a woodland garden with native species, naturalizing plants and shade lovers. Choose elegant, stately blooms for a formal look.
If you have lots of shade or too much sun, look for a collection that caters to those environments. Many gardeners choose a begonia collection for those shady spots, while others like feathery astilbe or a selection of ferns and foliage plants. Full sun and drought tolerant collections are designed for dry areas.
Flower size is another important factor. If you want height, you may want to consider flowers like medium height lilies, tall gladiolas or a mammoth dahlia collection. Vine plants like clematis add even more vertical effect. Low growing flowers like geranium make an excellent filler under taller blooms and can be used as a ground cover in certain areas. Some collections feature a mix of heights for a tiered effect. Create the garden of your dreams quickly and easily with a summer bulb collection.
