    More Information

    Bulb Lasagne Collection – inspired by the traditional Italian dish, this collection features a unique planting technique where bulbs are planted in layers, allowing for continuous blooms throughout the spring.

    Lasagne planting is a technique that involves layering various flower bulbs in a single planting area such as in a pot. The concept is similar to creating layers in a lasagne, where different ingredients come together to form one family favourite dish! The latest-flowering bulbs are planted at the bottom, with layers of earlier-flowering bulbs above them.

    How to Plant

    • Begin the lasagne planting process by digging a hole or trench in your pots or borders, that is deep enough to accommodate all the layers of bulbs in this collection.
    • Start with the latest flowering bulbs at the bottom of your pot or hole, Tulip Dordogne and cover with soil.
    • Follow this with the layer of earlier flowering bulbs Narcissus Sweetness and again cover with soil.
    • Next, plant your March and April flowering bulbs Tulip Honky Tonk and Muscari Latifolium, cover again with soil.
    • Finally, plant the earliest flowering bulbs, in this case crocus snow bunting which should be just 6 or 7cm from the top of your pot or border cover them with a final layer of soil.
    • To add instant colour to your pot for the winter, you could add Viola’s or Pansies until your spring bulbs begin to appear. Water thoroughly to settle the soil and initiate the growing process.

    Once your lasagne garden is planted, it requires minimal maintenance. Water the area or containers regularly, especially during dry periods but be careful not to overwater during the winter as this could rot the bulbs. You can also continue to apply a layer of mulch every now and then to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. As the seasons change, each layer of bulbs will emerge and bloom, creating a wonderful spring display!
