To create beautiful gardens, park and yards with an abundance of flowers and greens this spring it is time to start planning and planting as soon as possible. But where do you start, and how do you plan and which flowers and plants should you use? Ruigrok Flowerbulbs can help you with this list of trends.

1: Color-blocking

is thought of as the exploration of taking colors that are opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations. It is commonly associated in fashion as a trend that originated from the artwork of Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian. Now it is a garden trend as well!

2: Pantone

Or you can create neat rows of flowers in the same color. This minimalistic approach with big squares of color creates peace and quiet in any landscape. Maybe you need to draw attention to a certain part, then you can create roads of for instance blue hyacinths or white tulips towards the object or part of the landscape. An amazing effect!

3: 3 of a kind

Planting 3 bulb varieties of the same type will result in an astonishing spring display. The colors complement each other which gives that relaxing vibe! Use tulips or hyacinths.

5: Flora and fauna

The importance of pure nature is getting more visible, also in landscaping projects. Spring flowering bulbs are abundant producers of nectar that attracts bees and butterflies and help create a peaceful and healthy environment. These bulb types will help you lure those bees and butterflies to your garden: tulips, hyacinths, chionodoxa, allium, muscari, anemone.
