For every garden 'look', there's a summer flowering bulb to match, from regal agapanthus to exotic eucomis. While they're often planted out in spring, you can get ahead by planting them in February.
As a rule of thumb, bulbs prefer a light, well-draining soil, so wet, heavy soils are best avoided. Don't worry if this is the case in your garden, as you can instead plant all the bulbs shown below in pots and containers.
Take a look at our pick of five beautiful bulbs to plant in February, for masses of summer flowers, below.
