I know they are so invasive but I love the bright blue #grapehyacinth - these are brightening a corner on the plant stand on the deck. 💙 have a lovely day everyone 😊 #springcontainers

So lovely though, I wouldn’t want my garden without them. I’ve got all but one of mine in pots now and that will be done after flowering. Enjoy your day too 💙💙

I bought a small amount of these which I was gonna plant in my garden, but read they're invasive like someone mentioned so unsure wether to keep them in pots. 🤔 They are lovely looking little things though!

It depends @dickturpin how big your garden is.. I like them in the garden as they give a shimmering blue carpet and the foliage still looks nice but they look striking in a pot too..

My garden is very small to be fair. But I'm beginning to think a blanket of these around my Japanese maples and other shrubs I have may look great. I have various other shrubs which are only small at the moment to be honest. I'm a total amatuer in a gardening sense so unsure if that would be ok or even possible lol. I wouldn't wanna plant these and jeopardise my other stuff. As I say I'm clueless🤣

Apparently it’s #bluemonday - the most miserable day of the year!? I don’t agree my #mondaymotivation is spotting this and knowing spring is on its way! 💙😊 #bestofjan

Or a long walk Carole! ⬆️ What a lovely sight to see, love grape hyacinths. Just been sent home from work but had to step into garden for a 5 minute spot of plant therapy. Next stop - sofa. Have a lovely day xx
