Spring Bulbs Available

Spring Bulbs

Sheffield City Council are pleased to tell you that we will be supplying daffodils and crocus bulbs again this autumn. They will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so we urge you to order as soon as possible as stocks do go quickly.

 

You can phone or email your requests to:

When you get in touch, they will need to know your group’s name, a contact name, email address, postal address, and telephone number.

Alternatively you can fill out the Spring Bulb Order Form.  

Each group is limited to 1000 bulbs initially because of the high demand.  If you would like more please tell Sheffield City Council and they will let you know if there are any spare. There are:

  • 500 bulbs per bag of daffodils
  • 1000 bulbs per bag of crocus
  • Half bags are also available

Sheffield City Council need to agree with you where you plant the bulbs for a number of reasons including the safety of volunteers and the suitability of site.

This service is now a part of Parks and Countryside based at Meersbrook Park so the distribution arrangements are different to previous years.  Please tell us your preference and an alternative.

Bulbs can be collected by appointment from:

  • Norton Nurseries, Monday – Friday, 7.30am – 3.00pm
  • Parson Cross Pavilion, Monday – Friday, Dates and times to be confirmed subject to demand
  • Hillsborough Park Walled Garden, Monday – Friday, Dates and times to be confirmed subject to demand
  • Ecclesall Woods Sawmill, Weekends, Dates and times to be confirmed subject to demand

 What Sheffield City Council will do:

  • Supply bulbs free of charge,
  • Provide help & advice on planting bulbs,
  • Provide health & safety guidance, and
  • Provide a bulbs hotline as detailed earlier

The bulbs should be delivered to Sheffield City Council at the beginning of October 2011. Unfortunately they will only have the depots available for a 2 week period so they would be grateful if you could collect them as soon as possible (unless you make alternative arrangements with them.) They will have to allocate bulbs not collected during this time to groups who have missed out.
