Pottin up begins
I have started to pot up the hyacinths and paperwhite narcissi that will be on sale for Christmas - the idea is to have seemless waves of flowers, though that involves a lot of moving the pots between the tunnel and the house to bring them on or hold them back.
I have chosen 2 main themes - blue and white with aged aluminium/zinc and to be really Christmassey bold red and green. The two bowls that I have planted up with paperwhites are in their everyday life jolly mixing bowls. I like things to have a use after the bulbs are finished.
The lue and white planters have an easy on the eye antique look and are the planters that I hae chosen for my spring bulb range which I will hopefully be selling at Partick Farmers Market in January, February and March. Imagine them filled withwhite scented snowbunting crocus or nodding snakeshead fritillaries. Watch this space.
Hank pointed out to me that I had restricted comments on this site to other blogger users - sorry, it was not deliberate and I have now changed the settings - please comment away!
