The potential of spring bulbs

It's bulb planting time!

I'm slowly getting my act together and am planting more bulbs in the garden. I'm also going to grow some inside in a vase, like last year.
So, this year I am planting pink and black (dark purple) ranunculus, white tulips, purple freesias and a bi-colour anemone, which is a blend of white and blue. Exciting! I must drag out my daffs and replant them as well.
I did discover that I am somewhat allergic to hyacinths. Touching them caused a terrible, burning itch all over my face and neck. A google confirmed I am not crazy and certain people can find them very irritating. So beware!

What bulbs are you planting this year?


  1. I hope you'll show us all your blooms as time goes on! I've never heard of hyacinth allergies..thanks for the tip.

  2. Sounds like a fabulous colour combination for these blooms Sarah. I didn't know that about Hyacinths either. xx

  3. Well I have my hyacinths to plant, but I'll be bearing your tips in mind. I also have some new daffodils which look lovely in the photo (!!) - may not be so after I've dealt to them, and I'm determined to try some anemones again - third time lucky maybe? xx

  4. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labours, Sarah. J x


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
