My Spring pots .

10 comments


They give me a lovely display and they only cost me a £1 a bag from the pound shop I have to say when they have finished I discard them, the daffs I often throw somewhere on my walks if I find a suitable place the tulips I take the advice of garden & landscape designer James Alexander Sinclair who said in an addition of Gardeners World Mag I read that life was to short to dig up a tulip bulb just enjoy a new variety each year and treat them like summer bedding so thats what i do and as he said a packet of fat bulbs cost less than a potted perennial so its off to the pound shop every autumn for me I suppose some of you will disagree but we are all different lol …
So I have added a few photos of my pots ,my mish mash in my front garden is looking in need of a tidy up lots of self seeded primroses which look lovely so I will wait till they go over before I tidy it up enjoy the sunshine everyone !!

What a pleasure to see your lovely pots and borders. You have a smashing assortment of primroses. I love the evergreen shrubs you have too. Interest all year round.

Lovely photograps, I agree they look lovely and I like your mishmash as well, tulips here are weird, I have some that have been in the garden for years and they flower each springtime but new ones never return so I do try to remember to buy a few each year, if the bulb gets dug out by mistake during the summer I will pop it back in Nov, otherwise they take their chances, wish we had a £1 shop though, one opened in our town last year but only for 3mths, I was hoping to get lots of bulbs, think our town is too snobbby and they definitely charge over the top on rental, lots of retailers cannot afford the cost so we end up with empty shops, stupid isn't it...

I really like your bulbs and as for those primroses they look so pretty and so natural.
I think you have a very lovely garden.

nothing wrong with the way you do bulbs. Like lincs I have some that come up evry year and then I buy some pretty ones and they never reappear.

your prims are pretty as a picture.
