At that depth you would need 2.25 cubic metres of dressing. Though as said, that depth would kill the grass.

I.D. please

C. flexuosa is always blue or blue and white, never purple or pink. It is also does not grow from a corm, rather it has scaly roots which is what makes it easy to propagate from division. Also it grows over Winter then dies down in mid-summer and starts again in autumn. C. solida ( and others) grow from corms. They begin in Spring, flower and set seed and have disappeared by early summer. They are a bit like Crocus and Snowdrops in that respect.

Sorry Puncdoc, but No 5 is Corydalis solida. Flowers and foliage are different with C. flexuosa. I have a large number of C. solida in all sorts of colours, but there a dozens and dozens more I would like to get, but the prices...........sheesh!

Sorry, I cannot find a decent picture of any of my solida to show you.

Is it one of the Brunnera? or perhaps Omphalodes?

 

Anemone Marianne Panda/ Jerusalem Galil

Interesting. These are all forms of Anemone coronaria which are fairly easy to come by, but usually in mixed colours.

A question about flowers.

The only silly question is the one you did not ask when you could have done.

The leaves on Spring bulbs are now feeding the bulb for next season so you should leave them alone. They will eventually with away and once they are dead, then you may remove them. It is usually recommended that you snip off any seed heads/dead flowers to save the plant from wasting energy.

Primula leaves last a lot longer, but same again, the plant needs them to feed itself.

Most of our Spring bulbs grow up through other plants, so as long as you are careful not to damage the bulbs when planting, then yes you can have other things in the same space.

 

Another 'what's this?' thread...

Sorry BizzieB but there are white Chionodoxa. I have two lovely big clumps of them in the garden.

And I am beginning to think it is a poor Hyacinth. Though why it should suddenly appear after three years is a mystery.
