Daffodils, Freesias, Tulips, Anemones, Blue Bells are all classed as Spring Flowering bulbs, but the best time to plant them is actually in Autumn. The hibernating bulbs will happily go into the cooler soil of Autumn and Winter and then sprout up to put on a great show in Spring before dying back and hiding beneath the ground again in the warmer months.
On our property we have planted many thousands of bulbs and have them popping up everywhere. Great for cut flowers they require little care and are pretty easy to grow. Especially if you use a Power Planter to get them in the ground it is a very simple job.
If you live in the Cool or Temperate zones of Australia,
bulbs will do well coming up year after year.
In the warmer subtropical areas you can still have a go, but you may find you need to treat the bulbs as an annual that flowers once and may not come back up again next year because the summer heat was too much for it. There is a practice known as chilling that you could use. This requires digging up the bulbs in early Summer once they have died back and then storing them in the crisper of your fridge ready to plant again in May the following year. It’s a bit more of an advanced technique if you are really keen to have them growing in a subtropical area.
