Summer stars

The spectacular bulb display you've been enjoying all spring need not stop with the last tulip. Hundreds of beautiful summer-flowering bulbs, available in our garden centre in Nottingham, keep flowers coming till autumn.

Alliums: the firework-like spheres of showy purple alliums light up the border from May to July. Choose from tall drumsticks of 'Purple Sensation', the huge 20cm-across spheres of 'Globemaster'.

Dahlias: in flower from June to autumn, the choice is as dazzling as the flowers. Single-flowered dahlias mix most easily into borders: try scarlet 'Bishop of Llandaff'

Crocosmia: super-easy to grow with handsome strappy foliage, flame-coloured crocosmia lights up borders from July to September. Choose from vivid scarlet 'Lucifer', crimson-splashed orange 'Emily McKenzie'

Please ask the staff in our Nottingham garden centre for more information and advice about choosing bulbs for summer displays.
