Garden flowers

Bulbs: our original ideas to showcase them


Bulbs are fabulous for brightening up gardens, especially when placed in cool containers. Have fun customizing them!

Your imagination is your only limit to stage your bulbs. The only requirement: pierce your containers to have a well-drained soil and thus avoid rotting. Here are some tips on how to do it right.

Bulbs in the garden

At the foot of a tree: daffodils and daffodils are perfect for blooming and illuminating the smallest square inch of soil: to be practiced in the city, especially!

In a wheelbarrow: what a beautiful white marriage of these tulips, white daffodils and grape hyacinths! In a fuchsia pink wheelbarrow, the whole is brought to light even more. A nice hijacking of a gardener's flagship object.

On a table, in decorative planters: two round zinc planters will be the most beautiful effect with dozens of daffodil bulbs. The yellow-black contrast is contemporary.

In decorative planters, directly in the garden: Arums and grape hyacinths take shape in these white containers, romantic and easily transportable thanks to their handles.

Bulbs on the terrace

In a vintage woven basket: vintage-salvage atmosphere for this composition of grape hyacinths, tulips and hyacinths. Convenient to move ... on the terrace or in the house. In a contemporary woven basket: another interpretation of the basket with a plantation of daffodils.

Easy and so pretty! In XL design pots: these buttercups are absolutely magnified by this large polypropylene planter in the same color as the flowers. A real garden to transport.

In several designer pots: continue to associate the color of the flowers with that of their container and place them in large numbers, everywhere on a terrace.

With tulips in pots on the ground, grape hyacinths in hanging pots, your balconies and terraces take on the air of the countryside!

Bulbs at home

In a large pot: like a micro-field of tulips and hyacinths, this maxi-floral arrangement has something to dream about!

Beautiful as a centerpiece, in the hallway or in a corner of the living room. And why not in a room? In terrarium and soliflores: grape hyacinths and grape hyacinths will be highlighted in simple jars and other small glass containers. To be installed here and there, near the windows, to give a bucolic air to your interior. Collection version: on a trolley or on a piece of furniture, several containers arranged to mix green plants and bulbs (crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils), to display these gems of nature. The important thing is the number!
