  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: early March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    For the best possible display of spring bulbs in pots, the technique of planting pots in layers extends the period of interest and looks great. This combination can produce a display of flowers from early March through to May. On the patio or on either side of a front door they will give a scented welcome to your home in spring.

    In each collection you will receive the following:

    25 x Anemone blanda blue-flowered
    This is a wonderful plant that produces cheerful, daisy-like flowers in shades of blue and purple, giving a floral display from early March to April. Grows to 25cm.

    5 x Hyacinthus orientalis 'Delft Blue'
    A recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. Its porcelain blue, star-shaped flowers crowd the upright flower spike in spring, filling the surrounding air with their sweet perfume. I recommend planting it near a pathway or entrance, so the scent can be best appreciated. Flowers April to May. Grows to 25cm.

    10 x Tulipa 'China Pink'
    This beautiful lily-flowered tulip is also a recipient of the RHS AGM award and is beautiful and easy to grow. It has a small, lily-shaped pink flower which has a lighter base and rim to each petal. Flowers appear in early May and will start to tower above the hyacinths. Grows to 50cm.

    If you buy 2 collections, you will also receive 50 bonus bulbs of Muscari armeniacum
    Another RHS AGM award winner with charming, cone-shaped spikes of tiny, mid-blue flowers that apper in early March to April above the grass-like, mid-green leaves. Grape hyacinths look gorgeous peeping out of a large container planted with anemones. Grows to 15cm.

    Garden care: Add some bulb fibre to your pot and plant the tulip bulbs first, 15-20cm deep. Add more bulb fibre to cover them, then add a layer of hyacinths around 12cm deep and fill in as before. Then a layer of Anemone blanda blue-flowered planted at 2.5-5cm deep. For even more colour, I recommend adding an extra layer of Muscari armeniacum. Place these on top of the hyacinths and tulips but underneath the anemones, at 10cm deep.
