It is always very satisfying when a planting scheme turns out to be as you had hoped. When planting bulbs there is that awkward time delay from planting in the Autumn, to the results six months later. Will it work? The Serpentine bed in the new Ruskin Building garden is one such area. The hope was a river of blue, and so, it has come to be. A river of blue Muscari, Grape Hyacinths, have emerged, creating a gentle stream amongst the box balls. Wonderful!
