Sometimes a gardener has to be like the early Spring flowers. After a long winter there’s no huge display, just quiet enjoyment and opening yourself up to receive as much sunlight as you possibly can. Spring arrives rather late in my shady garden but the snowdrops and crocuses have finally caught on.
I have different kinds of crocuses, botanical and cultivars. I have noticed cultivars flower a bit later than the species. I started to plant bulbs in my garden four years ago. I have added a few every year. This year I get the idea they are finally spreading themselves a bit, which is very welcome. I would love a crowded spring bulb garden.There’s a catch, you have to be extra careful and early with clearing the remnants of last season. Despite being quiet online, I have been busy though, my list of jobs can soon be found in the Calender for March.
