Bulb Planting 2014
Last year the team planted 3410 bulbs around the gardens, see blog entry 31st October '3410 Bulbs To Be Planted', this year it is only 2930! The vast majority are tulips but 1000 Scilla siberica were planted today beneath the trees in the middle of the Nuffield Lawn, adding to the bulbs planted there last year, see blog entry for the 21st November. The tulips being planted this year are 'Apeldoorn', 'Black Hero', 'Black Parrot', 'China Pink', 'Labrador', 'Mount Tacoma', 'National Velvet', 'Paul Scherer', 'Queen Of The Night', 'Shirley', 'Lily Flowered Mix' and 'Triumph Mix'. In addition to these bulbs a small number of Allium 'Purple Sensation' and Narcissi 'Jack Snipe' are also being planted.
