Project Tulip

Over the last few days the team have been working together on the herbaceous border, cutting down all the tired plant material and weeding it.
If you were following the blog last November you may remember the planting of 300-400 tulip bulbs, well, we have now planted another 300 completing our project. Last year we planted the colours white, orange and red to mimic the summer display, well, we have now planted the two remaining colours, pink and purple, so next May, the border will be full of tulips.
Not content with 300 bulbs in this border, whilst Ady and Joss added a mulch, Graham and Ali planted 100 'Abu Hassan' tulip bulbs, goblet shaped with rich red flowers margined with golden yellow, in the corner border, see blog entry 29th October 'Hot Colours for Winter'
