They look like soldiers standing to attention!
They do look quite rigid, don’t they? And were not intentionally planted in lines like that – they were meant to be more in drifts than lines!
Drifts are always harder to achieve than you would think.
I bet the fairies dance around them at night!
So nice, how did you manage to have such beauties in the grass, Cathy?
I just lifted sections of turf and bunged them in before replacing the turf
They do look as if they are standing to attention waiting to be counted.
A nice collection.
They are very lovely but they do get everywhere! Do you weed the seedlings out of your bulb borders? The purple works well against the bronze carex, I hadn’t thought of that combination.
The carex/crocus combination is a chance one as the crocus were there first and it was summer when I created the shrub border and I had no idea where the crocus were, let alone whether they would survive the extra soil and the disruption of bein dug over! Weed crocus seedlings? Not quite sure what you were referring to
Persoanlly, I don’t think so either I love the way they carpet our mossy ‘lawns’. Sissinghurst control the spread of them https://sissinghurstcastle.wordpress.com/tag/crocus-tommasinianus/as they compete with other bulbs.
And where these are it is more of a ‘grassy bank’ than a lawn anyway
An absolute delight, one of the joys of February.
I don’t think they have ever been this good though
