@anne8691 sorry Anne, yes there's all sorts growing wild in the untamed bit but no luck yet 😣

You'll probably have to wait until after Christmas and buy them 'in the green ' more successful than dried bulbs. Also if you leave the Spanish ones in they'll cross with the English and you'll end up with scentless flowers.

@anne8691 thanks Anne, I suspect with the amount popping up and those next door those poor little English ones wouldn't stand a chance, think I need to thin them out, unless I try some in a pot
