More Details

Delicate and pretty, exceptionally early-flowering bulb and invaluable for that as a pot topper to precede your tulips.

I also love them in a shallow pot as a beautiful living table centre for an outsde table, on a window ledge or doorstep. This scilla is also lovely for naturalising with snowdrops.

Allow a planting density of 50-100 bulbs per square metre (5-10 per square foot).

Service good thank you. Scillas fine thank you. No show at all from the two lots of anenomes I bought for my garden and the guerilla garden in the village - mayve squirrels dug them up and ate them. Gloria Rothschildia rhizomes LOOKED fine and I planted as instructed but absolutely no show of flowers - won't do that again!!
