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, keep flowers coming till autumn.
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' or white 'Twyning's After Eight'.
Lilies: heady mid- to late-summer fragrance is the hallmark of stately Oriental lilies like white Lilium regale. Brightly-coloured Asiatics like the yellow 'Grand Cru' are non scented but don't need staking: and elegant Martagon lilies have over 20 blooms to a stem.
Crocosmia: super-easy to grow with handsome strappy foliage, flame-coloured crocosmia lights up borders from July to September. Choose from vivid scarlet 'Lucifer', or butteryGeorge Davidson Yellow'.
Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Templeogue for more information and advice about choosing bulbs for summer displays.
