‘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!
