Spring bulbs -too late ?

I have a space that can take some tall flowers at the back and wonder if too late to plant up spring bulbs ?  

I cannot wait for the first frost

Gosh, where to start, I am pilgrim terry Haynes (I think) was astounding - took it to my niece's wedding in Majorca and just couldn't put it down, got told off for being anti-social lol. Famous five as a kid, lord of the rings, war and peace as a teenager. Oh and gone with the wind - fab. Read time travellers wife whilst stuck in Brussels for a week due to the Icelandic ash cloud (alone and sobbing my heart out, embarrassing ! One of the greats was the kite runner ! I could go on and on  

Chlorotic skimmia and peris

Rights, have given them both a dose of epsom salts and stopped watering for now ! Let's see how they get on. thanks all. by heck, this gardening lark can be such hard work and can be so contradictory can't it. But I do love it. On another note, gardens teeming with lovely ladybirds but have noticed such a lack of bees this year (NW, good old Lancashire), my honeysuckle used to be almost moving over summer and this year has been noticeably quiet. So sad, bumblebee hotel next purchase. a lovely sunny Sunday September afternoon to you all

oops, all wrong on the skimmia front then, it gets about 5 hours sun daily (when it shines, of course) watered almost daily. It's very free draining though. Will give watering a rest and get the Epsom salts going on both And will plant on into the garden soil over winter methinks ! Thanks for you help x 

Dads are brilliant, and mums are pretty cool too...
