Spring Bulbs in Pots

Posted: 29/04/2015 at 10:43

I would wait until the foliage has completely died back, then take out the bulbs and store them somewhere cool and dark until Autumn.

That way you get full use from the container. Little early to be planting out new bedding anyway

Plant Identification Please

Not a clue on the second one

3rd one looks like a Geranium or possibly a Delphinium

South East Wales, no significant rainfall for at least a month. Been watering the garden copiously, never had to do that in April before.

Some due today though
