Friends are telling me that the unusually mild Autumn is causing their crocii and snowdrops to come up. Is this happening to OGGies?

I was so pleased with the long flowering life of my red 'Flaming Parrott' tulips last year that I have planted some blue, pink and black ones in deep containers this. I find deep containers are good for late tulips as I do not have to dig them up and I can put them in a corner to die down in May when it is time to get Spring bedding in.

What bulbs have you planted this year? Any new varieties?

It isn't too late to plant them now as the ground is sstill warm.

Our ground here (zone 5) is probably still workable to plant bulbs, but we've had a big snowstorm last Wednesday, and it's snowing again today. I've finished with the garden for the season. I did plant some extra alliums here and there last month. I just love them because they're so tall and the bees just adore them! emoticon

Hi Madge. Those tulips look gorgeous! I have cleared a piece of ground at the side of the muddy lane to my house. It was all brambles and ivy and dead branches. I have planted 15kgs of mixed daffodil bulbs there. I hope it makes a good show in the spring.
