Enter the world of summer-flowering bulbs, where Dahlias, Begonias, and Lilies steal the spotlight. In this comprehensive guide, we unveil the secrets to planting these floral treasures, along with exclusive insights into the amazing offers awaiting you.

Dahlias in different colours

1. Dahlias: A Symphony of Colour and Form

When to Plant: Dahlias revel in warm soil, making late spring the ideal time for planting. As the threat of frost subsides and the soil warms to around 60°F (15°C), your garden becomes the perfect stage for these showstoppers.

How to Plant:

  • Choose a sunny location with well-draining soil.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the dahlia tuber and place it with the "eyes" facing upwards.
  • Space tubers based on the variety, generally 12 to 36 inches apart.
  • Water thoroughly after planting and provide support for taller varieties.

2. Begonias: Elegance in Every Petal

When to Plant: Begonias prefer warm soil but can be planted in early to mid-spring. As the threat of frost diminishes, and temperatures reach a mild 60°F (15°C), it's time to welcome begonias into your garden.

How to Plant:

  • Select a shaded or partially shaded location with well-draining soil.
  • Plant begonia tubers 2 inches deep, keeping the indented side facing up.
  • Space tubers according to the variety, usually 8 to 12 inches apart.
  • Water gently to settle the soil and maintain moisture.

3. Lilies: Majestic Elevation in Every Stem

 When to Plant: Lilies prefer a cool start, so plant them in mid to late fall or early spring. For a summer spectacle, consider planting in early spring, when the soil is workable and the danger of frost has passed.

How to Plant:

  • Choose a sunny to partially shaded location with well-draining soil.
  • Plant lily bulbs 6 to 8 inches deep and space them based on the variety, usually 6 to 12 inches apart.
  • Water thoroughly and apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture.
