Gardeners' World - - We Love April -

We still have an­other month of tulips to go al­though, sadly, we will soon wave a fond farewell to the last daf­fodils. A fi­nal trum­pet­ing is worth en­gi­neer­ing and this is a very hand­some and har­mo­nious group. The top- of-the-milk tulip colour goes per­fectly with the pale petals of the nar­cissi.

Tulipa ‘World Friend­ship’

As with all bulbs plant in au­tumn, tulips are bet­ter dug in quite deep, about 20cm. Ex­cel­lent in pots or bor­ders. H xS 35cm x 15cm

Nar­cis­sus ‘W.P. Mil­ner’

A very tol­er­ant va­ri­ety that can be planted any time be­tween Au­gust and Novem­ber. Lasts very well as a cut flower. H xS 25cm x 10cm

Nar­cis­sus ‘Se­govia’

A choice, white-petalled va­ri­ety with a flat lemon cup. Plant it close to paths or doors so you catch its dis­tinct scent. H x S 20cm x10cm

Nar­cis­sus ‘Min­now’

An­other small va­ri­ety ( as the name sug­gests), so per­fect for pots. Flat, pale-yel­low flow­ers with a good scent. H x S 20cm x 10cm
