Hi Judy, so sorry for delay - I have about 100-120 pots (never done an actual count so I may have got that wrong, feels like that number though! 😂) - all my pots are adapted to what they are container. I tend to single plant only, I never mix them. My Iris and Crocus pots are made with a very well drained gritty soil mix - I think their native environments are on the side of mountains in the Caucasus region, Turkey and Iran area so like dry summers and can cope with cold winters @plants
Are you going to leave these in the pots, or transfer them to the ground? So many of "you" gters have things in pots! I didn't realize there could be so much gardening going on during the winter!! I have sooo much to learn! Its very exciting!
Hi @lesliecole49 👋🏼 - I'll keep these in their pots. These little Iris and crocus are so small I often think they get lost in a border display. I moved many of my smaller bulbs to pots last year and I had a much better display and appreciation for them. Definitely worth trying if you have space for some pots 😀
I've definitely become more of an enthusiast over the last two years. I have my absolute favourites like galanthus, and also eucomis (I've been collecting a few different species), Iris reticulata and histrioides much more recently 😊 @deekay
