Just the thing for anyone wanting a splash of fresh spring colour, either for themselves or as a gift, this perfect mixture of spring bulbs will bring some welcome brightness to any garden!
The metal trough planter contains everything needed to grow a spectacular display of spring bulbs anywhere in the garden. The rope handles and brushed white finish give a lovely rustic feel that will look superb whatever the style of your garden.
Beginning in February with the wonderful sunshine yellow of Narcissus ‘Tête-à-Tête’, these are joined just a few weeks later by the beautiful lavender blue flowers of Muscari armeniacum in dense clusters on miniature poker-like stems. Together they look incredibly joyful and will carry on flowering into May. What’s more, both the Narcissi and Muscari hold the coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, so they’re first class garden plants that won’t fail to impress.
All you need to do is plant the bulbs in autumn, and they’ll bring a spectacular splash of colour to the garden in spring. As the planter is reusable, once the bulbs have died back you can plant the trough with summer bedding, and the Muscari and Narcissi will return every spring, with more flowers year after year.
Supplied as a metal planter with compost and 15 bulbs, growing to a height of up to 20 cm (8 in) including:
5 x Narcissus ‘Tête-à-Tête’ – The classic dwarf daffodil with perfect miniature bright yellow flowers.
10 x Muscari armeniacum – Lovely lavender blue, egg-shaped flowers with white edges in clusters on poker-like stems.
