Snake's Head Lily planting

I spent a nice afternoon in the garden, tidying up. I've composted the tomato plants, and the runner and climbing beans, done a bit of digging and mowed the lawn, and I planted some bulbs.

I bought these Fritillaria Melagris (Snake's Head lily) bulbs for 99p from Home Bargains, I love the look of them. They have little chequer patterns on the flowers. I've put a few in pots and planted the rest all around the garden. They should flower between March and May.

  1. I picked these up a few years ago and planted them in my garden, they were pretty. Sadly I a year later I we3eded that patch and got rid of the bulbs - silly me, so missed seeing them again.
