Spring Bulbs from Boston Seeds

Our spring flowering bulbs are the perfect way to add some colour to your garden after a long winter. We have a wide range of different varieties of spring bulbs so you can create the garden of your dreams.


If you’re looking for something a little different at Boston Seeds, we also offer wildflower bulbs such as the gorgeous Snake’s Head Fritillary, providing vibrant shades of maroon and purple, and a fascinating petal texture. This flower was once widespread across the UK and is now making a comeback for its beautiful shape and colour. It looks especially striking as a burst of colour in wildflower gardens or to naturalise along woodland edges. 


For those looking to encourage biodiversity in their garden, our allium bulbs are excellent for pollinators, such as bees and butterflies. Highlighted by the RHS as being scientifically proven to help tackle the decline in pollinator species, choose from some of our favourites such as the Aflatunense Allium Bulbs.


Our autumn flower bulb range is available seasonally so if your favourite flower isn’t in season yet, visit our range of Spring-Planted Wildflower Bulbs

Spring Bulbs FAQs

When to plant spring bulbs?

Depending on the variety of spring bulb you are planning to grow will depend on the best time you should plant your spring bulbs. Usually most spring bulbs are planted between September and November, but refer to our guide for individual species.

How long do spring bulbs take to grow?

Most spring flowering bulbs are planted when dormant in the colder months and then take a few months to come into bloom. Once the temperature begins to rise during spring, the bulbs will begin to sprout - usually a flowering plant will then appear in 15 to 30 days.

How do you plant spring bulbs in your garden?

When planting bulbs in your garden, dig a hole that is deep and wide enough for your bulb - we recommend planting bulbs about 2 to 3 times their depth. Space your bulbs out so they are twice their width apart. Make sure your bulb is facing the right way up, typically it is with the pointed end facing up. Cover the bulbs with soil and gently pat the soil down to remove any air bubbles.
