When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Oops you’ve just reminded me I bought one...and have forgotten to plant it! 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’ll do it today, along with the tulips and hyacinths I also haven’t planted! 🙄

Well it’s done this in just the few months since December when I planted the bulbs, so you don’t have to wait long Melanie 👍😊 @greenfinger14

Oh it’s stunning Jacqueline 💜 - mine decided not to flower this year which is a real shame but it was expected as I saw it come up. Stems looked to thin so I think bulb has split and divided. I’m gonna do what @hayleyaj suggested and dig up and separate to let them grow out a bit 👍🏼

This is my first time growing them Rich and I’m absolutely thrilled. Sad to hear about yours but does this mean you will get more plants in future? @richard.spicer.7906 @hayleyaj

I’ve never grown them before but got these bulbs at a flower market in Ghent in November and was stupidly happy when I saw that they had made it through the winter. I’ll copy you in to a link that Rich posted about them a while ago 😊 @richard.spicer.7906 @robert1961
