Top Quality, Top Size Bulbs Flower Bulb Specialists Since 1868

Dear Sir/Madam We are delighted to present our new Autumn 2016 catalogue featuring over 700 spring flowering bulbs, including many new or reintroduced ones. Narcissi are represented by more than 100 varieties, and there are more than 180 Tulips to choose from; we feel sure you will be able to find some of your favourites, as well as new inspirations. Together with these most popular springtime bulbs, we also offer a vast range of the smaller or rarer spring flowers to explore, and we hope that these will bring colour, interest and adventure to your garden in 2017. We search constantly for special and different new bulbs and have recently found the exquisite narcissus Suave (pages 4 & 5). This new breeding has the most delicate colouring with a pale yellow cup and a most attractive and unusual frilled red edge. We think it is a simply beautiful flower. Alliums continue to be extremely popular and we have expanded our range, now featuring 32 different varieties (pages 44 - 47), including the new Pink Jewel with glorious pale pink flower heads with each floret having a lime green eye. It is very attractive, and as with all Alliums it is a magnet for bees and butterflies. We could not recommend it more highly. Paeony-flowering tulips are always wonderful, with their layers of petals providing an exotic splash in the garden. This year we have introduced a new variety, Wedding Day (pages 30 & 31), which has been named to commemorate the wedding of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It is now in full production and the strong-stemmed double carmine-pink flowers have delicate edges of white. They are particularly long-lasting and will provide a lovely addition to tulip displays.

First introduced to our catalogue in 2013, the Collections for Outdoor Pots and Tubs have proved extremely popular. These provide a magnificent display with attractive colour combinations flowering over a long period of time. We have now added the new Blue & White Collection (pages 36 and 37) containing 25 bulbs which complement each other to produce a cool and elegant picture.

W The front cover of this NE catalogue features another fine painting - this time of the magnificent Hyacinths, Paul Hermann and Woodstock (pages 38 & 39) - which we have specially commissioned from the up-and-coming botanical artist, Polly o’Leary Dip SBA (Dist) SBA. Again we can offer a small number of signed and numbered A3 Limited Edition prints, produced on museum grade acid free paper using light fast inks.

We were very proud to be invited to sponsor the inaugural Stonor Tulip and Spring Flower Festival at Stonor Park near Henley-on-Thames. The magnificent house was overflowing with thousands of exquisite spring flowers, stunningly

One of the forerunners of spring is the Reticulata Iris, with its delightful small flowers. We highly recommend our new Blue & Yellow mix (pages 58 & 59) containing a balanced mixture of the varieties Cantab, Joyce and Sunshine. These will make a fine addition to any early spring plantings.

arranged - tulips do make wonderful cut flower displays! The same family has lived in Stonor Park for over 800 years, so it is crammed full of history and many beautiful and interesting items, and is certainly worth a visit, www.stonor.com. The hugely deserving charity, Greenfingers www.greenfingerscharity.org.uk continues to receive our support. They are a small national charity dedicated to supporting children who use hospices around the UK, by creating inspiring gardens for them to relax in and enjoy. To date Greenfingers has built 49 gardens and outdoor spaces for children to share with family, friends and siblings, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation. Thanks to the extremely generous support of our QVC customers we were recently able to donate the princely sum of £7,500.

It always gives us great pleasure when customers kindly send in photographs of their bulbs in flower. Our thanks go to Carol Ingham for providing this image of her magnificent de Jager Conca d’Or lilies which she tells us have grown to a remarkable height of 8ft.

As ever we are always available to offer further assistance, and please do not hesitate to get in touch. Yours sincerely, In this catalogue we have highlighted some 255 varieties which have achieved the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit. These bulbs have been selected by the RHS for rigorous independent trials in ordinary UK gardens, which means that those awarded the AGM can give home gardeners confidence in their reliability, performance and disease resistance. We have also marked those varieties recommended by the RHS as nectar and pollen providers for bees, and the many other types of pollinating insects. The plants were chosen using the extensive experience, archives and records of RHS entomologists, beekeepers and gardeners.

George Clowes

We continue to have to disappoint some customers owing to late orders and consequent shortages of supply. In order to guarantee availability for some

P. de Jager & Sons Limited have been selling top quality, top size bulbs for over 147 years. We cannot overemphasise the importance of size. Top size bulbs really do make a huge difference both in terms of flowering and naturalisation. Smaller size bulbs will be less expensive but the results will be very noticeably inferior. In order to illustrate the contrast in size, we have photographed a de Jager Amaryllis bulb beside one purchased from a garden centre. You can see the difference! All de Jager top bulb sizes are published in our catalogues.

BULBS FOR INDOOR FLOWERING FORCING BULBS The bulbs on the next two pages are ideal for indoor planting. Once planted the pots need to be put in a cool, dark place, keeping the soil moist. Forcing will take between 12 and 16 weeks or when the shoots are 2’’ to 3’’ high. At this stage the pots should be brought out of cold storage into a cool unheated room. Turn the pots daily in order to keep the stems straight and strong. When the foliage and buds are well developed move the pots to a bright sunny position. This 2nd stage takes between 3 to 4 weeks.

CROCUS - LARGE-FLOWERING VARIETIES The large Dutch varieties are best for forcing. Remembrance is an all-time favourite but all varieties on page 37 can be forced. Pot as above approximately 1’’ below the soil. These bulbs require about 12 weeks in cold storage. C2245

PREPARED CHRISTMAS HYACINTHS These hyacinths are specially prepared for early forcing and for bowl and pot culture. When potting leave the tip of the bulb above soil level. Hyacinths need approximately 10 to 12 weeks in cold storage. They can also be forced in water sitting the bulb above water level so that the base of the bulb just touches the water, then place in the dark until the shoots are 2’’ to 3’’ high. Despatched from early September onwards when they are fully ready. H2855

PICTORIAL MEADOWS MIXTURES

Top Quality, Top Size Bulbs

These Meadow Mixtures are carefully blended seed mixes of native and non-native hardy species, designed to provide high quality flowering displays. They have been developed following several years of intensive trials at the University of Sheffield. Unlike other mixes that are available, they will flower and provide visual interest over an extremely long period of time (from summer through to late autumn) and are formulated to produce a succession of flowering species. They inject drama into large-scale commercial landscapes and create sparkling, complex and intricate pictures in the very smallest of spaces. They provide a colourful, wildlife-friendly replacement for mown grass; they can be sown formally in beds or to provide colour between shrubs, trees and perennials. Leeds City Council included a meadow mixture in their magnificent Gold Medal winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2010, and these mixtures have been used extensively in the Olympic Park. Sow the Annual seed mixes at a rate of 2-3g per square metre in the spring - March, April or May - and they will produce superb colour displays within 8 weeks or so of sowing. The Perennial seed mixes all contain over 20 species of plants, and should be sown at a rate of 2g per square metre (except Purple Haze – 3g per sq. m.) from early autumn to late spring, with October/November being the best for medium to large scale plantings. Once established the meadow can be managed simply with an annual cut in late February. SD111

Classic Annual Mix The original Pictorial Meadows mix is illustrated in the main picture opposite (taken at The Eden Project) and produces stunning displays right through until late October/November. Starting out with white, blues, pinks and reds, the tapestry turns to reds, orange and yellow in the autumn. The mix has been carefully balanced for colour and succession of flowering, and components include: Shirley Poppy, Californian Poppy, Cornflower, Fairy Toadflax, Tickseed, Red Orache and Larkspur. FH: up to 1m (39’’).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q. Is there any grass seed content? A. There is no grass content to the mixes. Don’t mix with grass as it will kill off the flowers. Q. Can I just scatter the flowers over existing grass to create a meadow effect? A. Unfortunately not - the seeds have to be sown on bare soil. Q. Will the annual mixes self-seed? A. Only some of the species in the annual mixes will. To get the same effect you have to resow each year. Q. Will birds eat the seed ? A. No, they are too small for them to notice. Q. Will the mixes work in Sandy/Chalky/Clay soil ? A. Yes. They will work on all types of soil, but for these mixes, the better the soil the better the result.

Q. Do I need to water the seeds if it doesn’t rain once I’ve sown them ? A. For annuals no there is usually enough rain eventually and if you over-water they could rot before they germinate. However, if there is prolonged drought after you have sown then you could try watering once a week. Perennials are more demanding and we recommend irrigation in Spring. Q. Will the mixes work in shady areas? A. Yes, but the mixes do need sunshine at some point during the day. Q. Can I combine the annual and perennial seed mixes? A. We don’t recommend this, as each seed mix is carefully formulated to produce a specific result. Q. How long will the seed keep if I don’t use it all? A. Usually for several years - keep stored in a cool dry place.

Please order early to ensure you obtain the varieties you require. DEPTH TO PLANT Failures with bulbs are most frequently due to their having been planted too deep or too shallow. A good general rule to follow is to cover the bulb with soil one and a half to twice its own depth, measuring the bulb from the base to the shoulder. Thus a bulb measuring two inches from the base to the shoulder should be covered with 3-4 inches of soil. Always on arrival unpack bulbs, leaving bags open so air can circulate until planting.
