@juliesgarden - Oh yes that's far too short Julie! I guess it'll free up another pot though! 😀

Good afternoon good folk of GT land! What a beautiful day it is, made even better with emergence of my Crown Imperial #fritillary bulbs! It's my first time growing them and I can't wait for them to flower! 😀

@jaynehynesburton - Hmm! They can't have been mine Jayne as it's the first time I've grown them! I saw them on Gardeners World last year and loved the look of them so they had to jump into my basket when I saw them at the local GC last autumn! 😀
