Tulip Tarda

Tulip Tarda


can't find a match for this with the pictures on the "Sainsbury Splurge" boxes - this appears to have no trumpet, and the petals are yellow with white tips

only tentative narcissus because it's in the bed where I put a lot of them, but it doesn't match any of the other plant box pictures, either

durrr! thanks Karen! got a fwe more of them coming up - sure I didn't plant either of my two miniature tulip bulbs in these places! but must have; these are dug beds so any bulbs coming up must have been ones I put in.

Will add this to my "garden", thanks again.

I always forget where I've put bulbs....always! never think I will, but always do!

lol I opened the narcissi boxes first and put them into the small bucket to be planted before I opened any other boxes: I then opened all of them except the bluebelss and the anemone, so I thought they'd been kept apart - each set mixed, of course, but the two sets separate. lol just goes to show one can't be too cinfident!

If I could only mark each one now I could lift later and group them; sure a group of these would look lovely together, rather than scattered in ones and twos

Of course I could put markers down, but they'd have to be big enough for me to be able to read what I'd written - even if hte weather hadn't taken part of it off! and that big would probably cast shadows on the plants around it.

or, hmm, some colour coding system, so long as i n oted whe code!

Ach...don't fret too much. You need to enjoy your planting. The scattered look works fine too! Much more natural. :)
