Aren’t they great? These are actually flowers not worms. Anemome nemorosa. And I put 100 of them in among the plants under the walnut tree.
And for once the planting is super easy. By the end of today I was looking for easy to plant corms and rizomes rather than meaty bulbs.
My tally so far is 1000 and that includes the easy tiny crocus bulbs I popped in the barn garden. Both plain tommassinianus and the exciting sounding Ruby Giant.
And I have put muscari armenicum bulbs along the edge of the shade garden. Hopefully when I walk up the path in spring I’ll have some zingy bits of colour to admire as I trudge.
That’s the brilliant thing about bulb planting. You are planting promises for the year ahead. And best of all, I only have 1175 to go.
