3 tulip partners for pots
Narcissus and Chionodoxa
A wonderfully girly mix of white and pink, courtesy of
Tulipa ‘Synaeda Amor’, Chionodoxa ‘Pink Giant’ and the scented white Narcissus ‘Thalia’. Plant in terracotta pots positioned beside the front door for a blushing April show.
Muscari and Viola
Try this sunny combo for a windowbox: Tulipa ‘Yellow Flight’ ablaze with yellow violas, white and blue grape hyacinths (Muscari), and the feather reed-grass
Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Overdam’. Guaranteed to bring some spring cheer to any windowsill.
A dramatic show for the terrace: plant smouldering ‘Queen of Night’ tulips with dark red violas and pink Bellis, beneath a blossoming dwarf peach tree. Prunus persica ‘Bonanza’ is especially good in a pot.
