The best of bulbs


'Where flowers bloom, so does hope'- Lady Bird Johnson



It's beginning to look like bulb planting season!

For the past few months here at Hayloft we have been carefully sourcing and selecting the most beautiful bulbs ready to share with you in our new bulb range.

To tickle your fancy, we'd like to share with you some of our top picks and why we love them so much.


Why choose bulbs?

1. Easy to grow- bulbs are so low-maintenance and easy to grow, making them a perfect choice for beginner gardeners.

2. Bold colour- Bulbs are available in every colour imaginable, allowing you to be really creative and bold with your colour choice.

3. Cost-effective- They're cheap! Bulbs are one of the cheapest forms you can buy plants in, so you get maximum impact with minimal effort and minimal cost.



Hyacinths
Without a doubt, Hyacinths have to be one of the most gorgeous bulbs around and are most definitely a personal favourite. They can be grown both indoors and outdoors and offer fragrance as well as beauty.

CLICK TO BUY HYACINTH ROYAL NAVY

Hyacinth Royal Navy is a truly unique variety that's highly sought after due to its rich colour. Double navy blue blooms appear in clusters during the spring, bringing with them a glorious head-turning fragrance.

Works well with:


Tulips
Tulips used to be the most expensive flowers around and in fact, they used to cost 10 times more than the average salary. Luckily, that's not the case anymore and now everyone can enjoy them! With such elegant blooms that you can get in pretty much any colour you like, it's no wonder they're a bulb favourite.

Named after the American party season loved by college students, this Tulip will certainly make you want to party when you see the gorgeous red and white candy-striped blooms!
Tulip Spring Break is a Darwin Hybrid, known for their exceptionally large flowers, reliability and bright colours. 

Works well with:


Narcissus
Narcissus are truly the ultimate sign of springtime as they are one of the first flowers to appear. Their bright and cheerful blooms offer a ray of sunshine in your garden, which is a really welcome sight after the cold and dull winter months!


CLICK HERE TO BUY NARCISSUS GOLDEN DUCAT

A truly decadent variety of Narcissus, Golden Ducat has glowing golden double flowerheads that are so eye-catching you won't be able to resist! The blooms are accompanied by a sweet fragrance that can also be enjoyed in the home, as they make great cut flowers.

Works well with:


Muscari
These fellows may be small but they can really make a big impact, especially when combined with other bulbs. They're so easy to grow and will pretty much thrive in any garden as long as they get plenty of sunshine. Plus, they have a glorious musky scent that will fill your garden, hence the name Muscari.

CLICK HERE TO BUY MUSCARI LATIFOLIUM



















A truly distinctive Muscari with bi-coloured blue blooms that give a striking two-tone effect. A popular variety that contrasts brilliantly with a number of other bulbs, Muscari Latifolium has won Bulb of the Year on multiple occasions, along with gaining an RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Works well with:


Allium
Alliums are a real showstopper and can make a really dramatic statement in your garden. Often seen in RHS show gardens, we think no garden should be without an Allium!

CLICK HERE TO BUY ALLIUM NIGRUM ROSEUM

Clusters of small but perfectly formed pink star-shaped flowers create large balls of colour that almost appear to float above other plants in the garden. These magical blooms are also great as cut flowers and look truly stunning in a vase. 

Works well with:
