My big blue pot now.


My big blue pot now.

There are Narcissi still to come - they were meant to flower at the same time as the tulips!

Last year I put them in a big box, let the leaves die back and then gave them away - but I've found an area in the garden where I can plant some,so that's what's happening this year!

6 Apr, 2009

 

Yes - it's Albert Heijn...I think that's how you spell it!

Thank you all - I am waiting for the Narcissus to open now! I think they are cream.

hi there...this is just beautiful... i don't have any bulbs in my little postage stamp so maybe i will use your inspiration to plant up something for next spring.... but i am a complete novice ... have you chosen bulbs that all take the same length of time to flower or is it more like producing a wonderful roast dinner so that everything is ready together?... ie joint on first because it takes the longest, then roasties, then yorkshire puds then veg then gravy... i don't think i've explained myself very well! i hope you understand what i mean .... i also loved the photo of your arch...

regards

Thank you - I'll try to explain what I do.

In the autumn, I choose bulbs which should flower at the same time, with one type a little taller than the other.

I plant them in layers, of the same bulbs on each layer, close together, with compost on top of each layer.

On the top I plant a central small conifer or upright grass and winter pansies which look good right through the winter. Then the bulbs come up and there we are! Does that make sense?

thanks spritz but it isnt the one i have. mine is more peachy. i will identify it one day!

Oh Andrea, how lovely! Welcome to GOY. :-))

In there this time round are orange tulips, 'Orange Emperor', cream and deep orange Narcissi 'Parisienne', some white Scillas, and the top layer is a central Cupressus with Pansies 'Amber Kiss' around it.

I will be taking photos in the spring....you'll see more of my BBpot! Watch this space! LOL.
