BULBS

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - In Business -

‘An­gelique’ tulip Martagon lily quite shal­low so the sun can bake them.

Th­ese will be fol­lowed by some deep red martagon lilies (‘Claude Shride’) – in con­trast th­ese like to be about 6ins deep in rich soil, and in sun or par­tial shade.

Nei­ther lily is a good idea if you have cats as all parts are pretty toxic for them. Other good choices for early sum­mer flow­er­ing bulbs are Ca­mas­sia and Star of Beth­le­hem.

I’ve got a busy time ahead of me putting all of th­ese bulbs to bed but I’ll en­joy imag­in­ing how they will look next spring and sum­mer!
