Spring bulbs part 2…

I have been looking around at some of the gorgeous spring bulbs available that I don’t have in the garden yet.

Check out Blooming Directs Spring Bulbs. They have some beautiful alliums, iris, hyacinths, cyclamen and the list goes on. They also have great spring bulb collections and an excellent gift idea of the ‘Drop In’ Bulb Pods.


It’s definately going to be alliums for me (if nothing else), they will give some great height amongst the perennials that will just be starting to flourish in May and June next year and an early start for attracting the pollinators.


First Grape Hyacinth

I’ve seen these everywhere for a couple of weeks now, but it’s only just now that mine are flowering. My Daffs are quite late too, but not bad for the first year!


Oh no! Some bulbs are sprouting already!?!

I can’t believe it 13 out of my 15 grape hycinths are already 5-10cms tall.

Panic is over, I have checked on line though and this does seem to be relatively normal, although the warm weather we are having at the moment is definitely not normal!?!
