Warwickshire garden centre to host bulbing demonstrations this September

by | Sep 12, 2016 | News | 0 comments

A Warwickshire garden centre will host a series of talks and demonstrations to ?Get Britain Bulbing? as we approach the start of the bulbing season.

Rugby, a Wyevale Garden Centre, will welcome local residents for one weekend only on Saturday 17 September, and Sunday 18 September.

Gardening experts will run several events at centres across the country, including Rugby to demonstrate the best bulbs to plant, how to plant them and, most importantly, when to plant them.

Plus, they will also be sharing some inspirational ideas for lasagne planting and how to create the ultimate, autumn hanging basket.

The events, for keen gardeners and those new to the scene, are free to attend and designed to educate and inspire the nation on how to nurture their bulbs throughout autumn, winter and spring.

Attendees will also walk away with a free bag of tulips and a planting guide to put everything they learn into practice back at home.

Wyevale Garden Centres and charity partner Marie Curie have teamed up to offer customers the chance to pick and mix several loose, mixed daffodils for ?4.99, with 10 per cent of every purchase going directly to the charity.

Customers will simply need to fill a 3 litre pot with their chosen daffodil bulbs, take their pot to the till where staff will transfer them into a bulb bag ready to take home.

The events being held at Wyevale Garden Centre in Rugby:

Lasagne Planting, which takes place on the Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 1pm, is free to attend. This demonstration will show visitors the quirky technique of ?lasagne planting?, an increasingly popular trend for planting bulbs during the autumn.

Experts will show several ways to layer bulbs, bedding plants and evergreens in compost which will then come into bloom throughout winter and spring.

Autumn Hanging Baskets, which takes place also on both days but at 12pm and 2pm, is also free to attend. As the seasons change, Wyevale Garden Centres will give their top tips on how to keep a garden vibrant with autumnal hanging baskets.

The talk will advise on what plants to use for a wonderful winter, hanging basket whilst providing a step by step guide on how to put it all together.
