3410 Bulbs To Be Planted
This year's bulbs have arrived from the suppliers 'Peter Nyssen Limited', 3280 to be exact, with another 130 on order and still to be delivered.
The majority are tulips, 'Black Hero', 'China Pink', 'National Velvet', 'Purple Dream', 'Queen Of The Night', Spring Green', 'West Point', 'Orange Emperor', 'Lily Flowered Mix' and 'Triumph Mix'. There are also 1000 Scilla siberica, a few hundred Narcissi, 'Fortune' and 'Sweet Love', as well as Allium 'Purple Sensation' and Anemone blanda 'White Splendour'.
Ali spent some time this afternoon planting the first of the bulbs, the 100 Anemone, adding to the 100 planted last year, hopefully enhancing the display seen in last April, see blog entry 17th April 'Anemone blanda White Splendour'.
