A collection of favourite bulbs to plant in layers for a succession of beautiful flowers.This collection contains:
- 20 or 40 bulbs of Iris reticulata 'Purple Hill'
- 5 or 10 bulbs of Narcissus 'W. P. Milner'
- 10 or 15 bulbs of Tulip 'Merlot'
To get dense and flowery potfuls, try planting your bulbs in layers in a bulb lasagne, layering them one on top of another. The largest and latest flowering goes in deepest, moving to the smallest and earliest in the top layer. The emergent shoots of the lower level just bend round anything they hit sitting over their heads and keep on growing.Iris histriodes 'George' is not available this year. We have replaced it in this collection with Iris 'Purple Hill', which has a very similar appearance and habit.
