Description

There’s almost nothing better to battle the bleakness of winter than forcing bulbs indoors - it brings us such vigour and colour, and it’s far simpler than one might expect. 

Whether you’re looking to force bulbs in the home or the greenhouse, West Dean’s Head Gardener, Tom Brown, is a font of knowledge on the subject. 

It’s a delight to hear from him again on the podcast, this time around his exciting trials with Hyacinths & Amaryllis, and some of the more exotic bulbs like the colourful, cascading Lachenalias.

In this episode, discover:

  • Advice on forcing bulbs, which varieties need a cold spell, and the need to be unnervingly sparing when watering
  • Fantastic early Hyacinth bulbs to bring a sophisticated sense of nostalgia into the home
  • Bumper-sized bulbs of Amaryllis which continue giving year-on-year
  • Tom’s favourite varieties, from the rich beetroot of Hyacinth Woodstock, to the showy, bombastic Lachenalia Aloides
