NATURALISING

This term denotes the planting of bulbs etc. in more or less natural surroundings and leaving them practically undisturbed. For example many daffodils are suitable for naturalising, as are erythronium, muscari, galanthus (snowdrop), crocus, scilla, cyclamen etc. Tulips (except a few species like Tulipa sylvestris) and bedding hyacinths are unsuitable.

Primula species such as P. japonica, helodoxa and pulverulenta can be naturalised in woodland or alongside streams and ditches.
