A Spectacular Garden

There's nothing like seeing bulbs in full bloom to inspire your imagination and open your mind to what's possible in your garden. Bulbs are among the easiest flowers to grow and also the most stunningly colourful to enjoy. A flower bulb really is a self-contained flower factory. Within this marvellous little package is nearly everything the flower needs to come to life! Enjoying their fabulous flowers means planting ahead; simply "dig, drop, done" in one season then "delight" in the next. In general, there are two seasons for bulb planting: Autumn and Spring. In Autumn, you can plant Spring flowering bulbs after soil temperature is below 50ºF/10ºC but before danger of severe frost. These bulbs bloom in Spring and look so beautiful they are worth your hard work! In Spring, you can plant summer flowering bulbs after the danger of frost has passed. These bulbs bloom in summer/fall. Now in September is the perfect time to start planting your spring garden. This year at Powerscourt Garden Pavilion, we are delighted to have Kapiteyn on board as a supplier. This family run business from the Netherlands produce larger than average bulbs of the highest quality. They develop new and exclusive varieties of bulbous and tuberous plants so you will have something different to enjoy in your garden when the spring flowers start to bloom. Here are some of the many beautiful Kapiteyn tulip varieties we have in stock at the Pavilion this year, as well as wonderful snowdrops, daffodils and much, much more...
