In every border there is a splash of acid, attracting the eye and forming a bright backdrop to all the spring flowers. Of course, the acid is the from the flowering bracts of Euphorbia, both rigida and myrsinites.
Everywhere I look there is colour, the garden has never had so many spring bulbs as this year. Let me share some images with you.
The advantage of Euphorbia as a ground cover plant is that bulbs can easily grow up through the long spreading stems.
All the tulips flowering now had been chilled for at least 12 weeks prior to planting, those already in the ground are at various stages of growth so as long as the mice don’t find them all I’m hoping for a long tulips season, which began at the end of January with the pots in the greenhouse.
Enjoy your spring!
