Growing flowers for Christmas

It’s always lovely to have fresh flowers in the house at Christmas and over New Year.  If you want to grow Hyacinths, Daffodils or Amaryllis you need to prepare to get them planted in mid September to early October depending upon the variety. Timing is everything so it’s worth putting a note in your diary or on your calendar so you plant the bulbs at the right time. I’ve found an excellent guide to planting for Christmas over at the RHS website.
