On my last day at work the boss gave me a couple of pressies from the team and one was a bag of Fritillaria Uva Vulpis (Note the mispelling on the tag in the pic below!)
Also. Something else to not is that the tag says 20 bulbs. But in actual fact there was 60 in there. Ok… Some will fail but still. Not bad at all!
So, after a couple of tweets asking for info and a bit of Googling I realised that I needed to get them in now if I want to have a show in springtime. And with that knowledge, guess what I was doing this morning? Yup… Procrastination… Erm, no. Serious planting!
So with gloves and an awesome dibber. (That’s a broken, thicker piece of bamboo to you and me!) I planted them all. Most went into the front of the garden but I did keep 3 bulbs to put in the back deliberately in a darker patch to see if it will grow at all. If they don’t then *shrug*.
Most of the bulbs were already pushing so I am hoping they were in the ground in good time.
