|Beneath The Catalpa Tree|
The unusually mild weather this winter has caused confusion in many plants causing them to bloom early. Flowering many weeks ahead of their usual floral display the snowdrops and daffodils are blooming early, together they are a welcome sight reminding the team that spring is perhaps just around the corner.
The area of planting showing this mixed display is the result of a project started two years ago see blog entries 5th March 2015 'Snowdrops, Aconites and Narcissus Beneath The Catalpa Tree' and 4th March 2014 'Lifting, Splitting And Transplanting Winter Aconites'. The idea was to extend the bulb area beneath the Catalpa tree, an area which was a mixture of bare earth, grass and exposed tree roots. The snowdrops and daffodils have established themselves well and seem to be thriving in there new location.
