I've been known to buy bulbs in autumn which I never get round to planting and then regret it when spring comes around. This year, I've made sure that the bulbs I bought got planted, so it looks as though spring will be a colourful affair this time round.
I usually grow a single colour tulip but this time I've gone for a mixture of colours with Triumph. They range from white and pale pink, through red to almost black, with some yellow ones thrown in for good measure. I bought two packs, so twenty bulbs in total, I hope I get a good mix of colours.
Tete a Tete is a favourite Narcissus variety so I couldn't do without them, but I also bought a pack of Thalia, a variety with ice-white starry flowers.
The crocus variety I've gone for is Miss Vain. It's an early bloomer which I decided on because it looks like a cream colour on the packaging, however, when I've looked it up on the internet, it is in fact a white variety. No matter, I bought two packs as I think crocuses look lovely en masse.
It's getting a little late to plant bulbs now, but I might still pick up some more if I see any I fancy. I haven't got any iris reticulata which I'm very fond of so they may jump in my shopping basket if I come across them.
