Colour in wait­ing

Landscape (UK) - - Our Landscape -

In Sep­tem­ber, it’s time to knuckle down and start or­der­ing bulbs for spring flow­er­ing. I like to plant up pots and then for­get what I’ve put in. It’s a nice sur­prise when the lay­ered bulb plant­ings be­gin a rolling show from Fe­bru­ary on­wards, start­ing with Iris retic­u­lata from the top­most layer, fol­lowed by cro­cus and daf­fodils, then mus­cari and, fi­nally, tulips from the bot­tom­most layer.
