Can you imagine anything more glamorous to start off the spring than this very early-flowering frit with its chartreuse-green bells? This was my March number one in our first Corona lockdown. I visited this pot several times a day.
This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.
Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.
Plant the bulbs with the point facing upwards, 20cm deep approx 20-30cm apart. Protect new growth from slugs and snails. Once they have finished flowering, leave them to die back naturally to help bulk up the bulbs for next year.
