Flowering Bulbs can be a great joy or great frustration. Gardeners buy bulbs with a vision of filling their garden with flowers year after year only to be disappointed the following year when there are no flowers to be seen.

Gardeners then lose confidence because the packet said easy to grow and multiply well but theirs did not. More often than not this happens because the climate is wrong for that bulb, being too wet in summer or not cold enough in winter to set the flower or something similar to that.

The Yorke Peninsula of South Australia is warm temperate and coastal with hot dry summers and mild wet winters. Temperatures can climb to around 44C in summer on many days and rarely fall below 1C in winter. Finding lists and advice on bulbs that repeat flower here is impossible so information is by word or mouth.

This page and associated web site sets out to help gardeners achieve success in growing their bulbs year after year.
