Spalding Plants Update

Last year I received some spring bulbs to try from Spalding Bulbs. I set my son to work planting them at the allotment and I am really pleased with them. 

I've planted anemone de Caen in pots so many times over the years and nothing ever happened so I was chuffed to bits when they sprang up amongst the gorgeous grape hyacinths. 

Loving the tulip selection in the pack too

I also received a red apple tree to review.  It was (on the outside at least) just a stick in the ground for a few months with a bud or two of promise. Those buds unfurled and have produced lots of leaves. I don't expect any blossom for another couple of years but it is so nice to see so much growth in the meantime.
