Whether it be common tulip varieties, or something a little more unusual, the pleasure that a bulb in flower can bring far outweighs the amount of work involved in growing it. There is a common misconception among non-gardeners that bulbs are just for spring flowers. However, as you are a more educated bunch, you'll know that this obviously isn't true. With some careful planning, it is easily possible to have garden interest nearly all the year using bulb species.

|Here's a cool looking plant - Arisaema nepenthoides. Several are in flower at the moment. Hopefully I'll get some seed set from these beauties.|
