Buying bulbs and seeds is one of the most economical ways to buy plants for your garden and they can be integrated into the mixed border for added interest or placed into containers. At Wyatts we sell Spring, Summer and Autumn flowering bulbs and a wide selection of seeds inside the Farm Shop. Di in the nursery gives demonstrations on bulb planting in the Autumn and Spring. She also prepares ready planted up bowls of bulbs that make ideal presents for friends and family.
Bulbs provide all year round colour with snowdrops (Galanthus), winter aconites (Eranthis), Anemone blanda, Leucojum vernum (Spring snowflakes), crocuses, narcissi and scillas heralding the start of Spring followed quickly by daffodils and tulips in mid Spring. Tall majestic Alliums, Crocosmia and Camassia create a showy display of colour, height and texture in the Summer. Autumn bulbs add that final splash of colour before the Winter sets in with cheerful Nerines, Autumn Crocus and cyclamens. To brighten up a winter’s day, bulbs can be forced to bring indoors at Christmas including the rich heady scented Hyacinths or the tall erect Hippeastrums that flower until early Spring.
We hold a wide selection of wildflowers, annuals, biennials, perennials, salad and vegetable seeds. What could be more satisfying than seeing the fruits of your labour turn into beautiful cut flowers or edible crops that have come straight out of the ground. We stock seed and potting composts and containers to grow them in which can be found in the Farm Shop.
