Onion flowers are the stars in the spring garden. With their blaze of color and abundance of flowers, they enchant in beds and pots and find a good place even in the smallest garden as well as on the balcony and terrace. October is the planting time for these real spring artists!
Everyone knows the enthusiasm with which we greet the first flowers in the garden every year after the cold winter days. Therefore it is wise to plan and prepare the deadly spring islands in your own garden in autumn. Onion flowers play the main role.
Bulb flowers have many advantages. One of them is that they are very easy to plant. In addition, you will find a very large selection of varieties and colors at the flower market, which are suitable for every scene in the garden. Onion flowers stage the grand entrance in beds, decorate the edge of the wood and greet cheerfully from pots on the balcony and terrace. Especially in small gardens, they appear like true artists.
These early blooming flowers thrive under deciduous shrubs without any problems, because by the time the trees shade the ground they are already retreating.
The right companions are very important for the effect of onion flowers: In combination with biennial flowers such as pansies, primes and daisies, the spring splendor becomes even more expressive and the spectrum of colors much richer. Perennial plant species are also ideal partners because the bulb flowers bloom long before they bloom. In this way, the garden looks much more natural than pure onion flower arrangements. You should pay attention to the harmonious transitions. Tall tulips and daffodils are best placed in the back of the bed. The half-height species such as hyacinths are planted in the middle and crocuses and anemones, for example, on the front edge. Incidentally, whole groups of the same variety are always the most effective.
Whatever: If the autumn October time is used to plant onion flowers in the pot and in the garden, the splendor of colors and the spring fever are already assured for the next year.
