There are gardeners who can remember the names of everything they buy, there are gardeners who make copious notes to which they can have instant access and there are gardeners who have good intentions of being either of the other two types of gardeners but for whom this ideal slips away. I’m the latter. So . . . it is only because I placed the order for these bulbs online that I can tell what their name is.
This pot of Iris Reticulata ‘Blue Note’ have been companions on the kitchen table for the last week. Their co-planted companions are still on the garden table in a less advanced stage but will make their way in one by one when this pot starts to flag.
