@ublaszko looking forward to seeing yours. They were amazing last year 😋

32w
comment
ublaszko

Unfortunately, I think they might not be as great this year because I didn't get round to digging them up and dividing. Judging by how many flowers there were last year they were due to be spaced out so they can keep on multiplying. On the positive, I have the first returning iris reticulata Harmony in 2 years 💙 @kez001uk

comment

@ublaszko there were masses of flowers, looked so good! Hopefully they’ll be kind to you this year and can be divided afterwards as a reward 🤣 oh you’re so lucky! Mine haven’t ever come back 😢

Overall, consistent warm is the biggest factor with most, hence the heated propogator. It makes a huge difference. At less than £20 at Wilkos, they're well worth it 👍

@ublaszko it was a big mixed bag from the garden centre. I don’t remember them being named as anything but mixed crocus. They’d be a good idea for adding a bit more random variety 😁

I reckon I'll plant them in a pot and then separate them once I see what they are. I might get some varieties that I don't have yet and it's always nice to have something new each year.

I find that it's easier to plan spring bulbs when they're in flower so you can match them with what you already have in your garden, rather than rely on memory to remember in September what you garden looked like 6 months before. If that makes sense...😅
