Welcome to Broadleigh Gardens

and unusual perennials

Based in Somerset, UK, Broadleigh Gardens has been leading the field in the propagation and mail-order retail of small bulbs for over 40 years. We are a Family run business and you can be assured of top quality bulbs from us.

As well as a full range of cyclamen, snowdrops, allium, crocus, tulips etc., we hold the country’s largest collection of miniature daffodils including the National Collection of Alec Gray hybrids.

We also offer a wide range of complementary herbaceous plants including hellebores, hepaticas, pulsatillas and our stunning range of Broadleigh exotic Pacific Coast Iris.

We produce two illustrated catalogues a year

Spring Catalogue (available in January) covers items posted in Feb – April (snowdrops, agapanthus, lilies, hellebores and herbaceous perennials -)  Request a copy to be sent in the post (UK only) as soon as it is published.

Autumn Catalogue (available from June) covers items posted in August (autumn flowering bulbs) and Sept-Nov (dwarf daffodils, tulips, alliums and spring flowering bulbs).

The Spring catalogue features snowdrops, cyclamen and other bulbs that prefer to be moved in growth as well as summer flowering bulbs such as nerines, lilies, eucomis and plants for shade like trilliums. Visit the  online store,  or download the catalogue.

A Gardener’s Guide to Bulbs

Christine Skelmersdale’s book was published in October 2012. 240 pages, almost 400 illustrations. All are arranged seasonally with guidance to use and associations.

In the Foreword by Alan Titchmarsh he says

“Her book is destined to be one of those in my collection that falls apart through over-use. No author could be paid a greater compliment, but it is a compliment that Christine richly deserves.”

A must for anyone wanting to grow bulbs.
Signed copies are £25.00, free P & P to the UK  available to order from Online Store
