Earlier in the week I popped into B&M (pound/dollar store) and I found that all their spring bulbs were marked down to 25p per bag. I thought this was a good buy as the packs are normally £1.99 or higher. (I imagine the quality will be ok.)
I bought four different varieties; I'm not too sure what the difference is between a Specie crocus and a Botanical crocus & not bothered to google it. I was just thrilled I found some on sale! Varieties: Crocus Botanical Mixed (40 bulbs) which flower Feb-March; Crocus Large Flowering Purple (25 bulbs); Specie Crocus Mixed (75 bulbs) and Narcissi Minnow (30 bulbs). I'm a fan of the miniature daffodil/narcissi as they don't get damaged in the strong wind we get in early spring.
The site supervisor, Jammie, oversees the bulb planting. She finds it hard to get her body and all her paws on the post.
Only a few days ago I was walking through snow - this is the view one morning as I was going to work.
