CORNISH and Devon folk are being invited this month to two garden centres in the counties to learn all about spring bulbs and winter bedding. [email protected] in Cornwall and [email protected] in Devon are hosting Bulb and Winter Bedding Weekends on September 27 and 28 to give visitors advice on how to create colour in their gardens from autumn to spring.
Peter Burks, Regional Manager at both centres, said: ?Our in-house experts will be able to give visitors handy advice about planting bulbs and answer any questions people may have.
?Autumn is the perfect time of year to plant for spring flowering. In September gardeners can plant bulbs such as tulips, snowdrops and a wide variety of daffodils. It?s also a good time to buy amaryllis bulbs to grow for Christmas.
?There will be lots of new bulb varieties to choose from, as well as exclusive new bulbs in stock.
?Our bedding plant teams will show people how to colour their garden and patios during the colder months. They will be giving tips on which bulbs, plants, compost and containers to use to achieve maximum effect.?
The events will include free tips about planting bulbs and advice and information on getting the best from your bulbs this year.
Peter added: ?The events are part of our Traditional Planting Month, which takes place throughout September.
?During the month our expert staff will be on-hand to answer any questions people might have about autumn planting.?
