Hi Chris - do you mean spring flowering bulbs like crocus and daffs etc?
I have clay soil here which is fine for things like snowdrops and most daffs but if you dig in some grit and well rotted manure it helps the soil structure, making it ideal for most bulbs. Snowdrops are often better planted in spring 'in the green' rather than as a dry bulb in autumn, but many people have success with them so you might want to try that anyway. Crocus are great for early flowers for pollinators, and you can follow that with daffs and narcissus. The single types are best as the flowers are open and easy for insects to get into.There are also species tulips which flower in late winter/early spring. They're not as awkward as the more fussy later ones and won't mind clay either. I also use the dwarf Irises - reticulata -which are early flowering, and anemones. They'll all enjoy the aspect you have, and you can follow those up with all kinds of alliums (along with the wild garlic) to take you into summer. There are loads more to choose from
It's almost time for bulbs to be in GCs but if you look online at some of the specialists, you'll get a great range and you can pick the colours and heights that will suit you best for the look you want. Hope that gives you a couple of ideas to start with.
