Had a lovely year for Crocuses

I had a lovely year for Crocuses this year! Although they all fished some months ago I have some great photos.

As I do my gardening on a balcony I have nowhere to keep spring flowering bulbs during the summer till I can plant them again at the end of October. As I really hate to throw away perfectly good bulbs I have been planting them in the gardens of Trinity Free church, which I attend, for the past several years.

This year I’ve planted out 4 troughs full of Daffodils, Tulips & Crocuses, together with the Pansies I’d planted over the top of them, alongside the path that leads to the main entrance. Last autumn I planted out lots of small Crocuses in a little bit of border in front of the main entrance. I thought a great many of them would be too small to flower this spring but after a year of growing in the church gardens they would give a lovely display in the spring of 2019. A few did flower but not many, as I suspected would be the case.

Obviously there are no Crocuses in flower at this time of the year but here is a photo showing where I planted them out. I hope next year, in February or March, to be able to post a couple of photos of the Crocuses flowering where I planted them out alongside the path leading to the main entrance.
