Lovely mix you have there

Very pretty planting. Good to see that you have escaped the flooding this time, Spritz, thank goodness. I have planted some of these little bulbs in pots but they are nowhere near in flower yet.

Can you let us know which varieties you are growing please?

What a wonderful artistic display, well done Barbra;0)

Oh B I love what you have done, I might have to pinch that idea, (hope you do not mind) I have the perfect place for those iris......

Yes they look stunning Barbara, I especially love the deep purple ones and like Gee, so relieved you are on dry ground!

That looks beautiful Spritz. What a great idea to put them altogether like that. What a show of colour.

Trying to answer all the questions: No, Brian, they've been in for about 5 years. They're multiplying, which is great!

Andrew, I think there's 'George', 'Katharine Hodgkin', 'Harmony', 'Claudette', 'Purple Gem', 'Alida' and 'Pixie' in that bed. I think there might be others, but I can't bring them to mind. I think I might have posted them in the 'my garden' section of the site...

Dd - isn't that what we're on here for, sharing ideas?

Thank you, Pp. :-)

Gee, I do try to have a few in pots, but I find that they give up after that year's flowering. They seem to prefer being planted deeply, and to remain undisturbed.

Excellent!

Beautiful!

Thanks. I always think of Carol Klein when they reappear - she says they don't. Well, CK, I hope you're looking! ;-D)

10 Feb, 2014

 

I do remember C.K. saying that, well they cannot be right all of the time!! Perhaps you should send her a photo!!

10 Feb, 2014

 

If I knew how to, I just might!

beautiful. is the paler blue one on the left Clariette? I have her and I've not heard of Claudette. if she exists its another one I need to get. I have natascha waiting to open her buds too. :o)

17 Feb, 2014

 

Sorry - a slip of the fingers and brain - yes, it's Clairette. Ooops!

18 Feb, 2014

 

not fair I had hoped that Claudette was another one to go hunting for ;o).

Do you have Pixie? if not would you like a pot?

18 Feb, 2014

 

Thanks, but yes, I have - now which one is she...I think she's purple/blue????

19 Feb, 2014

 

darker than Harmony but as I am blue purple colour blind they are just different shades of the same colour.
OH says more purple but still blue ???? does that make sense?

19 Feb, 2014

 

Yes - and I'm sure I've got her. :-))
