These tête-à-têtes are the only faithful daffodils to flower this year. A few others have come up but not started necessarily with buds but these have been in the trough for years and faithfully return every year. They really brighten up the garden.
These are the tulips I have planted this year in pots/troughs with wallflowers that I grew from seed and pansies not grown from seed.
I like to try different tulips each year and like them in pots because in the ground apart from the fact they are likely to rot with clay soil and a lot of rain it means I don’t end up digging up them up when I’ve forgotten where they are.
Here is a finished trough
