The snow that was the the snowdrops has melted into the sunshine of daffs. What a spring this is. The magnolias are outstanding and the camelias are in full flower. Shortly the cherry blossom will arrive. Underneath there is a sea of colour from a mass of spring bulbs – dafs, scillas, anemones, erythroniums, trilliums etc etc. . the Fritillaries and hoop peticoat daffs are excelling themselves by the pond and under the white cherry the cyclamen repandum are a burst of crimson. Even the first of the hundreds of tulips are starting to show colour. The display will only get better. Do call and help a very worthy cause.
In the nursery we are still sending out parcels from the Spring catalogue and there is time to place an order fro a display of summer flowering bulbs. Our large stock of the winter iris stylosa is flowering madly – the best display we have ever had. The wood anemones, erythroniums and out spectacular white primula Taigetos are flowering in the frames.
