Wonderful bulbs

Scented hyacinths

Scented hyacinths

As February blows in, the garden is out there pushing things through like a mother-to be.  The hyacinth bulbs come up through the ground, the green nose emerging like an inquisitive animal. Around them, the smaller muscari hyacinths are sending out stems too. I always plant my hyacinths – both varieties – in large-ish groups and always in white too. They're just around the box balls and pyramids so that the evergreen foliage makes a great backdrop. Planting bulbs in Autumn is a gutty job, but the display in Spring always makes it worthwhile.
