What with going away last weekend and it still being too dark when I get home from work, not an awful lot of gardening has got done recently.
However, my curiosity has been piqued by the appearance of bulbs underneath the bay tree. How many times have I reacted with consternation at the goings-on in the garden? Well, this is another occasion when I have no answers.
When I built the hugel bed last February, I am certain that there were no bulbs in the soil in that spot. Furthermore, I can hardly imagine planting any flowers there, considering it is supposed to be herb garden.
In any case, now the bulbs are there I will just have to see what they turn out to be. Then dig them out and move them on – unless they are Spanish bluebells. I definitely don’t want any of these anywhere front or back (apart from the back border, as my neighbour is rather partial to them there).
