I've always had a garden. I enjoy a challenge! I love the rewards when it all comes together. And I learn something new nearly every day. Perfect 🌻

Lots of things sprouting early this year! Could these be alliums perhaps? They don’t look quite like fritillaria to me 🤔

Never had much success with these wish I did as they look so exotic.

I’m in the Notth too so maybe give them another Joan. Plant them on their sides to stop rain rotting them is one tip I picked up @joannie.a

@jendren thanks for tip mot tried that. My grandson was so desperate to grow them he asked all the growers at Harrogate for advice followed it all and still lost them 2nd year. But no-one mentioned side planting.

Here’s hoping that helps Joan. I’ve got them in pots as well as in the border. Maybe he could try pots if he hadn’t already. Good luck. They are worth it @joannie.a

Promises of what’s to come! Loads of little buds still curled up inside. And the wacky baccy smell is starting already 😂

Funny thing is the ones I put in the flower beds are way ahead of the ones in pots which are only today poking out of the soil @valjones-hughes
