  • The African lily (Agapanthus) is a very popular lily. By breeding more than 600 different species appeared. The African lily is a summer-flowering perennial, which is not winter-hardy in Northern Europe and is grown primarily as a pot plant. In our climate it is therefore mainly used as a tub plant.

  • Allium (ornamental onions) have no less than 500 species, each prettier or more unusual in shape than the last. Ornamental Onions are ideal for making colour and height combinations in the garden or border.

  • Anemones (Anemone) are also known as ‘wind-flowers’ because they move in the slightest breeze. They are lovely, delicate flowers that command great admiration when planted in large numbers. Most anemones belong to the buttercup family and are native to Southern-Europe and Asia-minor.

  • Tuberous and other begonias are typical outdoor plants that are famous for their rich flowering in the summer months. With suitable care it is possible to encourage even richer flowering.

  • First of all, we would like to clear up a widespread misunderstanding: Bulbs are not Tubers!

    A bulb is in fact a complete plant, lying all curled up, waiting to unfold. If you cut a bulb in half, an onion for instance, all the tunics and eyes are visible inside the bulb. These are the future stalks, leaves and flowers.

  • The words ‘surprising’, ‘unusual’ and ‘glorious pink’ spring to mind when we consider the magnificent Cyclamen Hederifolium. This plant flowers in (late) autumn. It has to be planted in early spring if it is to flower the following autumn, so you need to order your bulbs by March at the latest. Let us take a closer look at this magnificent plant.

  • Indoor bulbs can be enjoyed all year round. In order for the bulbs to bloom they first need a cold period. You can simulate this cold period by potting the bulbs and putting them in a dark place for 3 months at a constant temperature of 9° C.

  • Dahlias are very conspicuous highlights in the September garden. A multitude of shapes and colours begin to appear in the garden, providing eye-catching and colourful accents when many other plants have lost their colour. In late summer the dahlia is one of the most beautiful plants due to its long, exuberant flowering and overwhelming colour. They should certainly not be missing in any garden!

  • The tulip is native to Persia and Turkey where the Lali, as the tulip is called in Turkish, grows naturally. In the 16th-century, Constantinople, the present Istanbul, was considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was a centre of trade, traffic, culture and political intrigue and the amazing city gardens were held in great admiration.

  • The name Hyacinth derives from the Greek 'Hycinthus', god of all that grows. This bulbous plant is native to the Mediterranean region and was known as ‘Hyacinthus orientalis’ (Hyacinth East). This name represents the lily family and part of the name of other species from the same family, for example the Squill (Scilla) and, even more outstanding, the Eichhornia crassipes (water hyacinth).
