When it comes the time to think about planting flowers, the big debate is always ‘do I buy seeds or blubs’? Today, we are going to help you settle this debate with yourself by sharing with you all the facts you need to know about both seeds and bulbs.

All You Need To Know About Seeds
Firstly, seeds will generally only grow the once. You will only see them flower the year they are planted. They will not grow back the next year meaning it may cost you a lot of money in the long run.

Seeds require very little care. Only some watering every so often after they have been planted. Due to them being the natural end of a plant’s reproduction system, they can be grown naturally from another plant that has sadly died with no care at all.

All You Need To Know About Bulbs
Unlike seeds, bulbs do not only last the year they are planted. It is likely, given the right care, that bulbs will flower again the following year and possibly more after that. They are a great reusable flower source.

Bulbs are also the very beginning of a plant’s reproduction cycle. Meaning they will in some ways require more care than seeds. You will need to ensure they are watered daily and given the correct nutrients to grow. Most of these can be found in your soil but some extra help will give you the best results.

So, these are the main facts you need to know about both seeds and bulbs. So, what will you choose? Both are as good as each other, it mainly depends on the amount of work you personally want to put into your garden and plants.
