Colorful flower bulbs for plant lovers

The fall

It might seem as if the gardening season has ended but nothing could be farther from the truth. There’s still an important reason to get out there and enjoy a bit of gardening: plant flower bulbs. These garden gems are planted in the fall so they have the whole winter to get ready for their big flowering display. It’s during this time that they develop good healthy roots that will help them produce their spring flowers.


Before you plant them, you have to choose them. There are so many kinds of flower bulbs that all of us can find what we want. Right now, there are three trends to consider: The Human Touch, Balanced Biotope and Recentered Stage. Each is paired with its own color scheme. They range from soft earth tones to natural greens to contrasting colors. But which of these trend colors will look best in your own garden?

The Human Touch

This garden trend is clearly all about ‘the human touch’. You can see this in the inviting look it creates that makes you feel right at home. Warm earth and skin tones are set against lilac and ochre yellow. Flower bulbs intensify this friendly impression due to their profusely flowering, softly rounded flowers. Plant them in undulating drifts of both light and dark colors for a perfect sense of harmony.

Balanced Biotope

This garden’s number one priority is biodiversity. This small biotope – in other words, the garden – really respects the needs of nature. Predominating here are yellow-green colors. Create a bold look by using unpolished materials as well as blue and brick red as supplementary colors. A colorful planting of flower bulbs in clusters is a logical choice for what looks like a naturalized garden.

Recentered Stage

This trend is all about its surprising differences in height: everywhere you turn, you see something different. The result is an exciting garden with many little places to discover anew. Here, flower bulbs can accentuate these whimsical relationships. Combining vivid colors and pastels (that keep the whole look from being garish) makes for a colorful, contrasting and playful impression.
