Tubs, beds and hang­ing bas­kets

The People's Friend Special - - GARDENING -

These may all get planted up with wall­flow­ers, polyan­thus, win­ter pan­sies, myoso­tis or daisies, but they will be en­hanced with the ad­di­tion of some bulbs.

Cro­cuses are best with hang­ing bas­kets of pan­sies, and use dwarf early tulips with polyan­thus, daisies and myoso­tis. Wall­flow­ers are taller, so use tall tulips such as Dar­win Hy­brids, sin­gle early tulips or Fos­te­ri­anas such as Red Em­peror or the white scented Puris­sima.

I have grown a wide range of so-called scented tulips, and the only one that I could de­tect any fra­grance on was Puris­sima, and then only oc­ca­sion­ally.
