Bulb and Bareroot Collection

This bargain Bulb and Bareroot Collection delivers right from late spring, with swathes of bearded irises in sumptuous shades from velvety violet to dazzling orange. In quick succession is a generous scoop of some of the most popular bulbs offering all-summer colour for spicing up borders and containers. Alongside, we’ve teamed up these five wonderful bulb selections with the fabulous foliage of our five best hostas which will keep performing right through until autumn. And just when you thought the show was over, the irises return to deliver a surprise September and October finale, as the ones we have chosen are all ‘remontant’ varieties which will bloom again at the end of the year.
