All the crocus in the garden are well and truly battered by our recent storms. This is when I am so pleased that I potted up loads of Crocus tommasinianus and kept them in the unheated conservatory.
I had intended planting them out as soon as I could see where all the other bulbs in the garden were.
Thank goodness I am behind with all my jobs as I am now benefitting from all their lovely little flowers, none of them smashed to the ground, all open and looking really happy.
It would have seemed so cruel in view of our recent weather, to have put them out in the cold, storms and gales, I don’t think they would have lasted 5 minutes!
Sometimes I think it pays to take your time and not rush to get everything done at the correct time, that is what I’m telling myself anyway.
As soon as they have finished flowering, I will try to remember to plant them in sheltered spots, just in case we have diabolical weather next February!
Are you up to date with all your gardening jobs or like me, benefitting from being behind with everything?!
