During last year I dug up most of the bulbs, sorted them then in the autumn replanted most of them along the top, roadside edge. Inevitably I missed some, including the crocuses that I showed here last week, so I’ll leave them to flower then dig them up before the foliage dies right back so that they can be replanted with the rest.
I didn’t know what many of the bulbs were so I just sorted into similar looking groups, and I’ll be interested to see how well I did.
Some groups , like this one, look okay but others are clearly a bit of a mix. I also planted some in containers.
The yellow tulips that I grow last year were kept separate and replanted in a container, and I hope that they’re as good again this year. However I also appear to have some others as this is a different container.
All these will provide lots of welcome colour over the next few months.
Some people, such as Chloris, have already been enjoying looking at snowdrops. She’s a self-confessed fancier as you can see in her recent post Snowdrops! Snowdrops! Snowdrops!. There are lots of Great British Gardens that are open during this month where you can go and enjoy seeing snowdrops.
Have a good week!
