Got home last night to find the delayed and then delayed again tulip order had finally arrived. All 652 of them.. It's a good job I have Mon & Tue off work! The problem now is that I'm going to end-up digging-up myriads of mini-daffs, crocuses and anenomes which arrived and were planted weeks ago so I can't remember where they all are (there were a few hundred of them, too.)
The alternative is to plant a lot of them in pots and then sink the pots into the beds later once the other bulbs start peeking through. Need to go out and buy more pots for that plan to work though. Oh well, it'll all seem worth it in the spring!
