With narcissus, most people think of yellow. This is the color we most yearn for after winter, since it stands for sun and invariably for joy and good spirits. There are actually many narcissus in the sun’s color, but that hasn’t been the whole story for a while: some bloom in pure snow white, others in crème and orange tones, some even come in more than one color. But even that’s not all: next to the classic shape of the well-known daffodils there are, for example, also double petalled varieties and others with elegantly swept back petals, such as the reminiscent cyclamen narcissus.

Combine Allium with Lavendel for an unexpected and striking contrast. Allium, with its large ball-flowers and sturdy stems, is one of the most imposing onion blooms. Its spherical umbels can be very large, like on Allium 'Globemaster.'

Houseplant for the month of December 2015: Some houseplants are just bursting with amazing qualities and we can say the same for the Hyacinth. Let’s count them: the plant has a bulb, loads of flowers, a gorgeous smell and a dramatic story.

It’s one of those little natural wonders, the blossoming of daffodils, tulips, and other flowering bulbs, the way they magically spring from the ground and herald fresh joy in the garden.

To get lush flowers grow from inconspicuous bulbs next spring, you have to put them in the ground within the next few weeks. Most spring bulbs such as tulips, crocus and daffodils are easy to maintain and remain at the same location where they spread by means of daughter bulbs creating a larger carpets of flowers each year.
