How to Grow Indoor Bulbs

Growing flowering bulbs indoors give a fantastic look when in bloom; they can be part of a centrepiece in your festive decorations or will add some cheer and colour on a cold winter’s morning. It is an easy and cost effective way to bring elegance and fragrance into your home.

Nearly all bulbs need to grow in a well-drained but moist soil so that the roots can establish, and some also require a period of complete darkness. When the bulb is withdrawn from light, it enables root development. The leaves and flower will start reaching for the light away from the bulb once reintroduced to light. When we are growing our bulbs indoor this way, we are essentially shortening this darkness period and therefore leading the bulb to believe spring has arrived.

Follow our easy step guide and you will be enjoying a home filled with fresh flowers;
