After planting out excess daffodil bulbs outside the rear bay window, and enjoying a lovely display of yellow in spring, I realised that if I planted autumn bulbs in between the daffodils, then I would get two seasons of colour from one garden bed.
To this end, I took the pot of over-crowded nerines and separated them.Then I laid them out between the daffodils, the dead leaves having now been trimmed. With the help of my trusty bulb remover, the task was not difficult.
By the time I finished I had three pots of bulbs, plus two garden beds. That gives you an idea of how packed in they were. It was like living in a tenement and moving out to the country. Hope they survive having all that space. Maybe they’ll take a year or two to settle in, but bulbs are thankfully fairly resilient.
