Bulb advice

The ranunculus and gladioli can be started off in pots now.

I would wait until Late April/ May to plant any of those in the ground though.

Dahlias probably best to wait a little while to put into pots

Never heard of Triteleia :P

There was a honeybee on my primroses this morning

I thought it was a little cold but it must have been hungry.

 I have planted some out in the garden but still had some left in pots, as you can see the new leaves emerge from that bulb shaped thing.

Looks like a Lily to me. Seems scaly 

That said, my Drumstick Primulas look like that at the moment.

Im edging on the side of Primula, if you zoom in you can see the primrose shaped leaf from last year.
