Six on Saturday 27/02/21

What a difference a week makes, weather-wise anyway. The last couple of days here in North Somerset have been lovely and sunny. This has meant frosty mornings but it has soon cleared. It’s also staying light later so more time outdoors. The birds are definitely behaving as though spring is coming and I’ve seen quite a few bees out and about in the flowers. The sunshine has brought the plants in the garden on well, especially the bulbs so I thought this weeks Six could be Six Spring Pots. If you say that quickly several times it turns into six pring spots, or is it only me.

The Iris and Crocus in these pots will be followed by Narcissi and Tulips
The bumblebees are enjoying the sunshine as well
I should have moved the pot with the dead Ficinia in out of the picture. It’s a borderline hardy plant and it survived last winter but not this one
These will be planted in the border when they’ve finished flowering
Iris reticulata ‘Eyecatcher’. There must have been a bit of mingling going on when they were packed. The Iris in the pots above were also a bit of a mix as well
Iris reticulata ‘Katharine Hodgkin’. I’ll definitely grow this variety again.
The Tulips are coming!

A short one this week but the bulbs go over so quickly in the sunshine I wasn’t sure that some of them would hang on for another week or two.

Have a great weekend, I’ll be in the garden trying to catch up after all of the wet, cold weather and then seeing what the other Sixers have posted at https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/

  1. Lots of lovely spring pots. I grew Iris reticulata ‘Katharine Hodgkin’ for the first time this year, but I’m still thinking whether I like it or not. Maybe too pale for me. I will plant them with another colour next year, or maybe some yellow crocuses for contrast.
