If I had to pick a season in the garden that I love most there would be a tussle between spring and autumn. I love spring for its bright cheer after the gloom of winter and autumn for its warmth and soft light. Both seasons feature bulbs; planting in autumn and enjoying the resulting flowers in spring. There is little in the garden that gives me more joy than selecting and planting bulbs. In my mind they are the accessories to your planting, creating surprise pops of colour and texture amongst your scheme. Really, no garden can be without them.
