The bulbs on the left were planted 10 days before the bulbs on the right. Time to bring the ones on the right inside to catch up. I have been glad the weather has not got above 5C recently as it has slowed the bulbsdown, hopefully for perfect timing for next weekend. I can bring the bulbs inside to give them heat to bring them on, but I can’t make it colder than it is outside!
I can’t believe how much I have enjoyed watching the progress of these bulbs – or maybe I have kept such a daily watch on them as someone’s wedding depends on it! It is probably that new growth and flowering is such a sign of spring and I am starting to get to that stage of the year where I want to see signs of spring on its way, these bulbs mean that it all seems a little closer. They also smell so strongly.
