I like the Murielae. If I wasn't doing more food stuffs' I'd plant these!

They & the gladioli were totally impluse buys... I saw the Murielae & considered picking them up (the bulbs were already sprouting in the bag)... then I saw the individual gladioli varieties & it was the Peach Melba that started sucking me in... then I saw the freesia (which I LOVE) & I was done for... I mean if I'm buying the freesia bulbs I might as well get the rest right?!

I'm hoping the gladioli are flowering by the end of June, beginning of July as they are my grandmother's favourite flower & that's when she'll be staying with me.
