Planting Spring Bulbs

F8A0D3E0-8A9C-4B9E-82FA-637DFFDB520AI like to plant spring bulbs every autumn, some in the garden and some in pots. Once planted they provide me with a start of a vision for  the next gardening year. I visualise them sprouting up and making me happy when they bloom. 

This year I am planting a white one called Tulip Francoise in pots for the court yard garden outside our office and Tulip National Velvet, a glossy red one, for outside the lounge french doors.

I will also be planting bluebells, snow drops, yellow winter aconites and yellow tulip sylvestris  in our new woodland garden. Although I have bought  a couple of hundred bluebells and snowdrops, it won’t nearly be enough.  I plan to buy extra in the Spring ‘in the green’ and so quicken the naturalising effect. I know it will take several years before my vision of the woodland garden comes true, but it excites me thinking about how it will look in the future.
