Many years of flowers
The Dutch expression 'Meerdere jaren bloei' (several years of flowering) We call this “perennialising” by which we mean that after spring-flowering bulbs have flowered, they should be left undisturbed in the soil and given enough time for their leaves to wither naturally so that the nutrients they have produced can be used by the plants’ underground storage organs to prepare for the next growing season. The practice of using spring-flowering bulbs in this way actually mimics the same natural cycle as followed by perennials.
