Wildflower Bulbs (Autumn Planted)

Boston Seeds supply quality, UK native wildflower bulbs to domestic gardeners and the trade alike. Our bulbs are sourced direct from growers and are selected for their size, quality and provenance

 

Some of our most treasured wildflower species are best established in the autumn by planting bulbs. Aim to plant the bulbs at a depth of around three times the bulb height and use a variety of species to create a natural-looking and long flowering season.

 

Bluebells are the most iconic early flowering British wildflower and usually flower from April to May. Plant in damp, shaded areas for best results, and complement with earlier flowering species such as Snowdrops and Winter Aconites

 

With many other species to choose from, wildflower bulbs are a great way to establish very early flowering plants, giving colour to your garden as early as January.
