There is sure to be a type of Anemone to suit your garden. Take a walk through any woodland in spring and you are likely to stumble across Anemone Nemerosa, also called the 'Wood Anemone' scattered amongst the trees in the dappled sunlight. These are supplied as rhizomes - a type of sprouting root - and prefer a cooler, shadier spot. Anemone Blanda, known as 'windflower' will open wide with the strength of the sun in your borders, and will be happy to rest there all summer. Arriving as corms - an underground stem - a good soak overnight before planting is required. For cut flowers, the vividly coloured Anemone De Caen is very popular.
Bluebell Bulbs (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)2 Products
English Bluebells are synonymous with the sights and smells of ancient English woodland, giving late Spring carpets of violet blue, bell-shaped flowers with a hint of fragrance. <h2>Why grow Bluebells?</h2> English Bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) produce swathes of colour up to heights of 12 inches, and will multiply rapidly year-on-year as they naturalise in their position, giving more and more pleasure as the seasons come and go. English Bluebells make excellent transition bulbs between the early Spring blooms and early Summer perennials, and are extremely attractive to bees, helping to create a healthy ecosystem in your garden. <h2>What varieties of Bluebells does Gee-Tee have?</h2> Browse our range of bluebell bulbs below, and filter by colour, height, flowering month and more.

Camassia Bulbs6 Products
The starry flowers come from North America. They will look beautiful in your flowerbeds through May and June, but are equally tall and proud naturalising among grass. Make sure not to mow them until July, when all trace of the Camassia has disappeared. This hardy bulb will grow happily in heavy or even clay soils. We suggest planting amongst Pheasant Eye Narcissus (N.Poeticus-Recurvis): this makes a fantastic display and they enjoy the same conditions too.
Growing these dainty, star-shaped flowers is a child's play. Adapting to any soil and suitable for any area of your garden or pots they will re-appear year after year in early spring. Planting in large groups will give a bright display to gaps in borders. Chionodoxa are a most useful but very cost-effective plant.
Crocus Bulbs26 Products
Just as you think winter will never end, the Crocus pushes through the snow to break the icy cold with vibrant early Spring colour. The spectrum covers pink, red, orange, yellow, purple, blue and more, with many having strong scents that will lure bees out of their hives as early as February. <h2>Why grow Crocuses?</h2> The Crocus bulb is a very versatile bulb – you can plant Crocuses just about anywhere, from tiny pots to great carpets of colour. Like other bulbs, such as the snowdrop and bluebell, these are most impressive when planted in large numbers. In late February or early March, the contrast that Crocuses give flowering against yellow daffodils is superb. Crocus bulbs offer more benefits in that they are both perennial and naturalise, meaning they spread organically, and will re-bloom year after year with minimum care, creating larger and larger displays as time goes by. If you want your crocus to naturalise in grass, the quickest and most effective way is to use a spade to cut under and peel back the turf. Break up the soil and scatter the crocus bulbs randomly, then simply roll back the turf. Be sure to avoid mowing the grass for a couple of weeks after flowering until the foliage has died back. <h2>What varieties of Crocus Bulbs does Gee-Tee have?</h2> We make our own mixtures of both large flowering crocus and specie crocus to showcase the wonderful variety of colours. The intricate details, wonderful scents and bright colours make it a trade favourite. Browse our range of crocus bulbs below and filter by colour, height, flowering month and more. <h2>How to grow Crocuses?</h2> <span style="text-decoration: underline"><a title="How to Grow Crocuses" href="38596}">See our growing advice for Crocus. </a></span>
Daffodil Bulbs (Narcissus)101 Products
There are few flowers that herald the onset of Spring as effectively as the vibrant, colorful Daffodil. Grown in large swaths, Daffodils can brighten up any garden setting, from pathways and beds to open areas, woodlands, pots and more. <h2>Why grow Daffodils?</h2> These hardy perennials bloom in late Winter to early Spring, and can tolerate a wide range of soils, although are best grown in moderately fertile, well-drained areas that remain moist during the growing season. You can extend the blooming period by planting different varieties including early bloomers like ‘Flower Carpet’, ‘Paperwhite’ and ‘Ice Follies’ which will be followed by late bloomers like ‘Acropolis’ and ‘Pink Select’. While some kinds of bulbs tend to dwindle and die out if left in the soil, daffodils should thrive and increase in density. After four to five years well-fed bulbs will have formed many new growth offsets. Lift these in early Summer when their foliage starts to yellow and divide the the offsets from the parent bulbs by prising them apart, and replanting immediately. <h2>What varieties of Daffodils does Gee-Tee have?</h2> At Gee Tee we offer both the smaller Dutch grown dwarf varieties as well as the popular large daffodils and narcissi, produced by local bulb growers here in Lincolnshire. Most of our range of large daffodils bulbs are available in 25Kg nets, so if you are in the trade we are able to send bulk quantities nationwide. However, if you are interested in the many wonderful varieties we have on offer, we also sell bulbs in packs of 50 using fully recyclable netting.

Plant in a warm sunny spot in rich soil and watch this unusual, exotic looking flower - related to the Arum family - unfurl. The long deep purple spadix will begin to appear as a proud spike in mid-May, and will finally reveal its flowering glory with a height up to 28 inches tall.
A good partner to the snowdrop, Eranthis thrive in woodland and rocky areas. When so much of the garden is bare, these cheery yellow buttercup-like flowers appear early on, closely followed by the snowdrop. Bought as tubers, it's best to soak them for 24 hours before planting. Another good way to establish them is to buy 'in the green', lifted and sent out in clumps as young plants during and after flowering. This method is available from us in February and March.
This is a large, hardy plant that's commonly known as the 'Foxtail Lily'. Eremurus produces a stately stem, displaying upright spikes of starry flowers, shoulder-high and above. A little care is needed in planting. Ensure you provide a spot with good drainage in a sunny border, sheltered from the wind. Follow this simple rule and you will be delighted with the reward. Eremurus can also be used to add a spectacular cut flower display.
These graceful plants love woodland, or a wild setting. Humus-rich, well-drained soils suit these dainty spring flowers best. Erythronium bulbs are best planted upon arrival, with their pointed end uppermost - get them in quick, because they don't like being dried out. All varieties have fascinating leaves and make good company with such plants as Anemone Nemerosa and Fritillaria Meleagris.
This family of plants (also known as fritillaries) is very varied in shape and size, they are suitable for many conditions but are easy to grow. Fritillaria Meleagris (Snake's Head lily) is small and shy, just longing for a meadow or wild garden. Other types can be very tall and formal, like the elaborate Crown Imperials, shooting from great big bulbs, they will stand upright and firm in your borders.
Hyacinth Bulbs15 Products
Hyacinths are an absolute early-Spring delight, with their elegant range of waxy, scented flower spikes adding swathes of colour perfect for garden planters, pots and cut flowers. Part of the lily family, the tubular flowers can be clustered together or mixed and layered with other varieties of flower to create dramatic displays. <h2>Why grow Hyacinths?</h2> Hyacinths are easy to grow, handle the colder conditions of early Spring well and don’t require much attention once in the ground. They thrive in neutral soils, and sunny to partially-shady spots where they are unaffected by dappled shade from overhanging trees. Hyacinths will re-bloom every season for three to four years, but can easily be propagated by lifting bulbs carefully in late Summer, removing excess offsets and replanting them in the following Autumn. <h2>What varieties of Hyacinth Bulbs does Gee-Tee have?</h2> We offer many different Hyacinth bulbs to suit your individual garden needs. Our remarkable assortment of colours mean you can create any design you wish, from the flamboyant to the patriotic. In total, there are approximately 30 different varieties of this perennial flower including the common Hyacinth (Hyachinthus Orientalis) whose flowers resemble starfish, and the common <a title="Muscari Armeniacum (Early Giant)" href="5442}">grape Hyacinth</a> whose blooms look more like clusters of grapes. The varieties present different heads or flower stalks, with Single Hyacinths producing full flowering heads, Double Hyacinths beautiful fluffy heads and Multiflora Hyacinths producing a number of flower stalks with looser bunches of flowers. We also supply Hyacinths which have been heat prepared. These can be ‘forced’ and grown in pots of baskets ready for the perfect Christmas gift of indoor winter blooms.

Attractive, hardy bulbs from South America, they do well in drained soil and can be left to naturalise. This brave flower may burst prematurely into growth, risking leaf damage from frost, but their real display in April will not be harmed. Ipheion will create large patches of flowers quite quickly. Dividing and re-planting can be carried out in late summer or autumn whilst the plants are dormant and should be kept only just moist through this time.
Our Iris bulbs fall into two categories; Specie Iris and Dutch Iris. Although clearly related, the two are rather different. Specie Iris are short, typically 10-15cm high, and will flower very early in the year, roughly around the same time as crocus and early daffodil varieties. There is a vast range of colours and shades all with the most exquisite detail. The blooms are a welcome addition to bare earth and they make a perfect pot specimen. Dutch Iris will bloom in early summer and can be half a meter high. They offer great value and will contribute to any flowerbed. Dutch Iris make an ideal cut flower favoured by florists all over the world.
Showing nodding, white bell-shaped flowers in the spring, you would be excused for thinking this was a very large snowdrop. However, Leucojum (also known as Summer Snowflakes) are taller and come much later with a distinctive bright green spot on the end of each petal. You should plant them in clumps in your garden or in grassland. If your soil is dry and sandy, digging leaf mould or compost into the ground to help maintain moisture would be beneficial.
Also known as the 'Grape Hyacinth', this really is a jack-of-all-trades! Perfect for naturalising, Muscari are equally as good when used to fill gaps in your borders and compliment tulips and daffodils perfectly. They will take to any well-drained soil and are self-seeding. Don't worry if they become a little congested - just lift, split and replant the extras elsewhere. Try planting them in a pot with Narcissus Tête á Tête for a gorgeous combination.
A wonderful plant from the Allium family. You'll notice the similarity if you crush the foliage, which will then (and only then) give off a strong smell of garlic, just like other Alliums. The leafless stem stands tall to reveal bell-shaped flowers, striped in maroon and cream. Unusually, after fertilisation seedpods will form and the stem will stiffen and turn upright. They prefer sun or partial shade and will grow in any soil.
Attractive silvery-white and green flowered plants, Ornithogalum grow well in borders, pots and rock gardens. A sunny or partial shade position in any well-drained soil will ensure that the Ornithogalum thrive. Positions providing too much shade may make the flowers stubborn and reluctant to open.
Scilla are definitely something a spring garden should not be without. The delightful little squills of blue in its erect stance make it impossible to resist. They will be happy in any well-drained soil and can divided easily after time to make further Scilla displays in the future.

Tulip Bulbs (Tulipa)163 Products
There are few flowers in the world that can compete with Tulips for variety, vibrancy of colour and shape, and cut-flower magnificence that brightens up any home. <h2>Why grow Tulips?</h2> Tulips offer growers a great many advantages, with hundreds of colours, shapes, sizes and bloom times to choose from. Grown in vast clumps, Tulips produce carpets of colour, and can be planted in borders, beds or even lawn sections to bring early Summer through mid-Summer flowering displays. Tulips are fairly easy to grow, and will grow in part-sun or shade, and range in height from about 6 inches to 2 feet, making them ideal to add colour into mixed planting beds, or a deep display of their own. <h2>What varieties of Tulip does Gee-Tee have?</h2> Browse our extensive selection of tulip bulbs below, available in over 12 colours and variations. Tulips, or Tulipa, truly hold a special place in our hearts with a great long history of passion and innovation. Times continue to change and although the tulips fields of Lincolnshire aren't as common as they used to be, we are lucky to be able to stock approximately two hundred carefully selected Tulipa varieties, featuring every imaginable colour and shade, and flowering times ranging from early March through to mid-May. If the choice seems overwhelming try our mixtures, all made on site with as many varieties possible to enjoy the great range available. Our cutting mixture is great value – 100 bulbs of early, late, single, double, classic and fancy flowering types. We are happy to discuss any of our tulip bulbs, whether you are in the trade or looking for an interesting purchase for your garden. <h2>How to grow Tulips?</h2> Tulips prefer sunnier spots with afternoon sun if possible, with well-drained slightly acidic or neutral soil. Taller varieties should be sheltered from strong winds to avoid stems breaking. Plant your Tulips in early Autumn, spacing your bulbs about 10cm apart, and planting the bulbs at a depth around 20cm. To prepare the area, dig trenches in random patterns and fertilize with a balanced compost or time-release bulb food. Plant the bulbs pointy side up in large clumps for maximum effect, and water immediately after planting to trigger growth. When the leaves emerge in Spring, feed your Tulips with the same bulb food you used when planting, and water well but ensure the soil is draining correctly. Once your Tulips are blooming you can deadhead the flowers but do not remove the leaves, as these will ensure the bulbs are able to gather and store energy needed to bloom again the following year. Once the foliage has yellowed and died back, it can be removed. It is best practice to remove the tulip bulbs from the ground once the foliage has died back. The bulb splits into many smaller bulbs at the end of the flowering cycle. They rarely produce good results the following year. Once lifted you can replant the larger bulbs and keep the smaller bulbs if you want to propagate them. <span style="text-decoration: underline"><a title="Tulip Bulbs (Tulipa)" href="1224}">See more Growing advice for Tulips.</a></span>
