Extend the enjoyment

Why combine flower bulbs instead of planting just one kind in the garden? Planting a combination of flower bulbs will make your enjoyment last even longer.

And combining colours makes it possible to create exactly the look you want. Each of these top 4 flower bulb combinations has its own character: romantic, exciting, cheerful or enchanting.
