Wisley Flower Show
Allium Sphaerocephalon. The bees just go nuts for it. There were some really impressive allium displays today given the time of year.
Allium Nectaroscordum siculum for ages and picked up 10 bulbs...and then we stumbled across Allium Summer Drummer. Oh my - they are fabulous. They are so tall! They can grow up to 175cm. Quicker than you could say boo to a goose, Mr M had purchased four bulbs and a solitary Allium White Giant - which, given the bulb size, should provide one of those big finale fireworks.
Scabiosa Chile Black had sold out, so I'll add that to my 2016 wish list. And I was hoping that there would be a stand selling the beautiful wrought iron plant sculptures that a lot of the plant displays had, but alas no.
Snow Bunting', 'Goldilocks', 'Romance', 'Spring Beauty', Narcissus 'Jack Snipe' and 'Canaliculatus' and the tiny Iris 'danfordiae' and 'Pixie'. In front of the house, 40-ish mixed Wisley daffodils with a few of the leftover crocus bulbs. I ran out of puff, so tomorrow we plant the allium. We've somehow ended up with 60 Allium Sphaerocephalon - can you guess the garden theme for 2016?
Have a lovely weekend.
