Bulbs for London is an MPGA initiative in collaboration with Taylors Bulbs of Holbeach, the renowned British Bulb Company.

We had a fantastic response to Bulbs for London 2018 and during December sent out bulbs to 100 gardens and sites across London.The MPGA works across the 33 London Boroughs and the good news is that bulbs went out to almost every Borough. Some of the resulting displays can be seen below.

The bulbs are not available until the very end of the planting season so need to be planted as soon as they are received. In the main, this is carried out by the wonderful teams of volunteers who work in so many of London's green spaces. In fact our initiative highlights just how many volunteers give their time to enhance the Capital for the benefit of us all.

Our thanks go to our partners in this venture, Taylors Bulbs of Holbeach, who very generously provide and distribute the bulbs totally free of charge. These bulbs, combined with those supplied annually since 2012, have benefitted over 750 sites.
