I have been madly planting spring bulbs in the last few weeks. LOVE LOVE LOVE watching the process of the first shoot appearing, right through until the flower fades. Gives months of antici......pation!! Great value for money, in my opinion. Biggest problem I come across is that when I dig the hole, oh dear, there is a bulb already in the spot. I try and mark them with short bamboo poles, but they are only any use if you keep them in the ground next to the bulb 12 months of the year.
Last year I found a perfect solution was to plant tulips and lilies in large pots that fitted inside nice containers, so when they were ready to flower, I could bring them inside, or onto the front porch etc. And write on the side with a vivid pen, so you can remember which is which! Full of bright ideas for you today!!! Now go and buy some.
