Are you longing for the summer, waiting for the moment you can finally put hand-picked flowers on the table? No need, you can do this in spring already! Flower bulbs are true heroes. They face the cold as though it were nothing, which makes them proper early bloomers. Start picking your flowers in February and bring forward that much-awaited picking season.
Shape, colour and smell – flower bulbs have it all. The most famous one is the tulip. Tulips exist in all sorts of colours, shapes and sizes. And they flower in several different seasons, so you can enjoy picking them for longer. Besides tulips there are many other spring flowers that are perfect for picking, such as hyacinths and daffodils. They give you that instant spring feeling.
There are several ways to create your own picking garden. Plant the flower bulbs before the first frost. You can plant them in borders, in wooden planter boxes or make them part of your vegetable patch. Plant the bulbs three times as deep as they are tall. Don’t be shy in the quantity you plant, so that there will be plenty of flowers to pick. Plant them closely together, but make sure they do not touch each other.
