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

22 Mar 2019 • Really enjoying these little beauties bouncing around in the breeze. I’ve never grown them before and would love to know if they would be as happy if I planted them in the ground 🤔 Any thoughts peeps?

Mine are in the ground, but I'm thinking of moving them as they're at the top of the garden and I can't see them, will probably still put them in the ground though. 👍🏼😀

Thanks Sarah. I might do that in the autumn. I just think they might do better in subsequent years in the ground 🤔

They’re in Lincolnshire aren’t they Jane. Are they far from you? I’d love to visit. I think they do an open day. I’m definitely going to order a few more bulbs from them for next year 😍 @pelly

Thanks Sarah. I think these are going to go in a pot and eventually to the windowsill outside my kitchen window 😊 @sieve
