What are naturalising bulbs?
It's a great idea to visit those fairy-tale places from mid-February to mid-May and admire the large scale, or sometimes smaller scale, flower carpets in parklands, in meadows, orchards and at the foot of monumental tree avenues. Magical!

Naturalising bulbs are sustainable
Naturalising bulbs may be closely linked to history, but they are completely up-to-date and for many reasons a very sustainable and therefore modern choice. By planting naturalising bulbs you make an investment for years, maybe even centuries.
The bulbs will steadily expand by either bulblets or seeds, with minimal maintenance. In this respect they have the same characteristics as perenial plants. Most naturalising bulbs disappear after flowering and seed formation underground to make room for other ground cover plants. That is why combinations with other plants are also so important for the succession.
As an added bonus, some bulbs and tubers, such as the delicate cyclamen and the arum also have beautiful, decorative leaves!
