Springtime in my Garden - 3

In addition to the wallflowers, I planted tulip bulbs in my raised bed for colour and dramatic effect in the Spring.

Tulip Greigii Cape Cod produces orange flowers edged with yellow on short stems ideal for planting in large pots on the patio or group planting at the front of flower borders.

I purchased these bulbs at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate. They provided me with a container and invited me to fill it with bulbs - I filled it up like an ice cream cone - with plenty of bulbs siting outside the container. I don't think the lady at the check out was very amused - but they look wonderful in my garden!

These bulbs were supplied by Taylor's - suppliers of flower bulbs to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
