I thought I'd finished planting bulbs until some Pheasants Eye Narcissus bulbs arrived late from Parkers and then guess what! Tammy popped over from Stockton Bury Gardens to pick up some calligraphy and gave me some tulip bulbs. They were the fattest, plumpest most lucious looking bulbs I've seen this season. I must ask more about their origins! I'fe always loved the Pheasant Eye variety for their wonderful perfume and their bright eye. They're also much later than most Narcissus

There was nothing for it but to enlist some help (new bionic shoulder now on order!) lugging heavy pots and compost. I'm pleased to say that they're now all planted in some gritty well draining potting medium and top dressed with some horticultural grit. Very smart.
Roll on spring!
