Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

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.

Spring blos­som

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.
