The type of Spring flowering bulbs you might like to try would include Freesias, Babiana, Ixia, Ranunculi, Jonquil, Tritonia, Zephranthes, Chincherinchee, Arabs Eye and Brodieae.
In the summer flowering selection, that gets sold and planted in Winter, choose from Zandtedeschia Calla Lilies, Canna Lillies, Asiatic and Oriental Liliums, Christmas Lillies, Dahlias, Gerberas and Amaryllis.
