My first bit of gardening for 2011 - planting up some pots of tulips. Now I know it's a bit late, but I'm afraid the bad weather meant I just couldn't / wouldn't venture out to plant them in December. I managed to get some in the borders in November, but I over-ordered (as usual!) so had four bags left unplanted. The thought of trying to chisel out frozen soil from pots was just too much. However, it's been a bit milder in Sussex this week so I was able to brave the elements and whack them in. Will they bloom this year? I hope so - I'll post the pics later in the year! I popped some forget-me-nots on top of the pots for the tulips to grow through so hopefully they'll look quite nice.
