Lovely clump of Ruby Giants I planted a few years ago now. They seem to do very well in my soil. Much better in the ground year on year than they ever did in pots!

Think they are my favourite for outside Joan - they always look so vibrant. Think I’ll get more in autumn, or spread some of these around. @joanboston

Thanks Katy 😊 - I’m tempted to split them but hard decision as I like the big group of them together. Might see how much they are for new bulbs in autumn. Trying to watch the pennies at the moment. @gjones

03/03/19 - Crocus Update - still catching up after a busy couple of study days. Done quite a bit of apple, ornamental tree and rose grafting recently, will post some bits this week. This crocus photo obvs is not today (😂☔️💦💨🌬) but from earlier in week. I planted this crocus both in the ground and in a pot, but the ones in the ground have multiplied amazingly 💜😍 #crocus #crocustommasinianusrubygiant #crocus-tommasinianus #crocustommasinianus

@krishnahairdo I saw, yes they look good. It's great now that lots of things are coming into bloom. Did you plant yours last year, or have you had them a while?
