Flower Bulbs & Tubers FAQs

  • When should I plant flower bulbs?

    When you should plant flower bulbs depends entirely on when the flowers bloom. The flower bulbs need to be planted well in advance of their blooming season to give them time to grow and take root. For example, if you have spring-blooming flower bulbs, you’ll need to plant the bulbs in the autumn when the soil is cool enough. 

  • Can you leave flower bulbs in the ground all year?

    Once your flower bulbs have bloomed, it’s usually safe to leave them in the ground or store them inside until it’s time to plant them again. Some flowers such as tulips and hyacinths need to be lifted and replanted the next year to prevent the flower bulbs from shrinking each year.

  • What is a plant tuber?

    A common example of a tuber is a potato plant. The tuber is an enlarged part of the plant that works as a storage container for essential nutrients. As the plant grows, it uses this storage container to feed its offspring (i.e the potato) and to ensure that the whole plant survives winter.
