How Do You Look After Summer Flowers?
Plants and flowers can be tricky to look after during hot weather, especially if we're experiencing a heatwave, but luckily for you we've got some great tips on how to help your flowers and plants thrive in the hot weather! The first thing you must do is water your plants regularly and deeply from the roots, or they will wilt and dry out in the sun. Wait for a cooler period before you do certain things like pruning or re-potting plants as you don't want to disturb them too much during the intense heat. Make sure to feed them every 10-14 days to encourage them to continue flowering, and also keep an eye on them!
How Do I Plant Summer Bulbs?
Planting summer bulbs may sound daunting, but it's not as hard as you might think, let us talk you through it! First, you'll need to start off by digging a hole that is wide and deep enough to plant all of your bulbs in. Then, you simply push the bulbs into the holes, but be careful not to push too hard or you could break them! Once you've pushed them in, cover them over with soil and firmly press down, and you're done. Well, don't forget to water them, then you're done!
Do Summer Bulbs Come Back Every Year?
Perennial bulbs will definitely come back year after year, and they will do this for up to five years before they disappear. Most bulbs are perennials so you can expect the majority of your plants to come back each year, but there will be some that won't return year after year, depending on the type of bulb they are and what environment they're in!
