Transform your May garden and house with this Dutch Iris collection.
These provide invaluable drifts of colour to keep your garden interesting for the whole of May and into June. I have mine planted on my salad bank in a bulb lasagne below some salad leaves and the iris come back year after year.
All you need is a few of these and some alliums and perhaps some aquilegias, then your May garden will be as good as it is earlier in the spring. They’ll fill your May gaps.
