Like a bad girl I kind of forgot to plant them again come the autumn.
Whilst perusing the garden on Sunday afternoon I noticed tulips popping through the soil. Staring at them for a good few minutes trying to remember when I had actually re planted them it dawned on me I hadn't & they were still in a tub in the greenhouse. The tulips that were in the ground had escaped my trowel last year.
Anyway I went to the greenhouse to retrieve said tub with the view of chucking some wizened bulbs away. I was wrong? Can you see green bits in the photo above? They had started to send out shoots. The best of them have now been re planted. They might or might not grow. I'm happy to take a chance.
The green bits could actually be greenfly as the bulbs were rather shockingly covered in them I assure you there were shoots from the tulips as well.
It just goes to show I need to improve my greenhouse hygiene & because of my slackness I will be buying one of those sulphur candle things this weekend to let off in the greenhouse.
I shall be sending the lovely Mike in to do this, the same lovely Mike who came home with a bunch of chrysanths for me yesterday.
Enjoy your day.
