Vibrant Ranunculus and Anemones not to be missed
I’m completely guilty of overlooking some late spring/summer flowering bulbs, partly due to my dad massacring some Ranunculus when I was a kid.
However, no more! Dobies of Devon’s Bulb Catalogue 2017 is released in August with some real stunners.
Bulbs are a decent size for good flowering – an easy way to bring vibrant colour to your garden and home.
The summer bulb catalogue carries varieties for spring planting and summer flowering next year – here are three of the best:
