Talkback: Growing summer bulbs
I've just received my Polianthes tuberosa bulbs -20 of them- which I will plant in four big pots to give me a line of wonderfully scented flowers for the summer. In between seeing to the summer months to come, I am planting snowdrops, anemones and Tulipa tarda in the green and reveling in the thought of joys to come as I notice, while doing so, that my beautiful peonies have two inch sprouts showing. The most beautiful thing in my garden today? Iris unguilaris,which is taller than the reticulata irises but not as tall as the summer ones and is a lovely soft blue colour. I've come to the conclusion the only quiet time in the garden is when it is under snow!
