Bulbs are known for producing some of the world’s most prized perennial flowers. Daffodils, tulips, hyacinth, hippeastrum are just a few well known bulbs that come in a large variety of sizes and colours that are enough to brighten up any size garden.

A bulb is composed of a series of rings known as scales. Bulbs grow new scales from the inside each year, which gives rise to a perennial growth cycle. Bulbs have a rounded shape, narrower towards the top, and a flat base called a basal plate. This is where the roots, shoots and scales emerge from. New ‘daughter’ bulbs also develop from the basal plate. Leaves and flower stems grow from the top of the bulb before emerging above soil level.
