Did you know that some kinds of flower bulbs bloom in the summer? We also plant these summer-flowering bulbs such as gladioli, lilies and dahlias outside – but not in the autumn. They are unable to tolerate the winter cold because they originally come from regions with a tropical climate.
If planted in the autumn, they will not come up in the spring. By then, freezing temperatures will have killed them. This is why summer bulbs are planted in the spring. That’s also when you can buy them. Many of these summer bulbs are less well known. After all, there are so many other plants on display in the garden at that time! Meanwhile, the plants that grow from flower bulbs are not as conspicuous. Many people don’t even know that these are flower bulbs!Back
