Combined by Arthur Parkinson, I love these simple terracotta pots alternating between the Oxford and Cambridge-blue, Muscari latifolium and the azure-blue, ‘Valerie Finnes’ along his windowsill. These both bulk up readily and reliably. Transplant both to a border after flowering and they’ll give you pleasure for years. You can always lift and divide them to plant in pots again.This collection contains 25 bulbs each of:
- Muscari latifolium
- Muscari armeniacum 'Valerie Finnis'
Can take over a bit if given room so pots are the perfect way to contain them. Remove spent foliage. Lift and divide clumps in the summer months to avoid congestion.
