Not sure yet. I'll bring them indoors, I think.

Lovely flower you have there, Spritz!

I have one that's in bud on our living room table. I don't know what colour it will be for the moment because it's one that's in the pot of three different colours. Another week & I'll know!

Have I mentioned that a lot of my seedling bulbs now have buds coming out of the neck of the bulbs? They should flower just after Easter. I've been growing them for the last 4 years - now I'll get to see the fruit of my work! I'll write a blog & put photos of them in it.

Oh please do - that should be a very interesting one to read and learn from. :-)

Many Thanks for the Parkers tiop, Spritz. This is on my GOY wishlist for the GOY garden centre section, but it always sells out too quick. My Dad gets the Parkers catalogues, so will check in them as the year progresses. :-))

Hope that works! :-0)

I've taken a few pictures of the buds just out of the neck of the bulbs but it will after Easter before they flower, except for the one on the living room table. That will flower in time for Easter. I still don't know what colour it will be.

Exciting! :-))

The one on the living room table is now showing some colour - red. But whether it's the pure red or the red with a white stripe down the petals is too early to say.

I took some photos of the bulbs in the kitchen window & in our bedroom as the buds have now grown up quite high. I found one of the highest in our bedroom & was very surprised because I hadn't noticed it before! You must remember there are at least 15 pots of them on the windowsill so you shouldn't be surprised that I might have missed a bud for a few days!
