At the beginning of Autumn, flushed with enthusiasm about growing my own flowers for cutting, I placed a bulb order. A rather substantial one. And I managed to rally the troops to help me build a new raised bed and dig trenches and holes in which to plant many of the aforementioned bulbs. Some of them, though, I popped into pots and containers with the notion of forcing them in time for Christmas.
But if all the bulbs perform this well, we should be in for a bumper Spring.
