I don't know as I didn't need any. My local Lidl had oodles of it last week to I bought just one for the princely sum of 59p :)

Hyacinth - Mar 20 002 (800x600).jpg
To my utter delight I have found this gloriously deep blue hyacinth having a wonderful time half hidden beneath the mahonia. Absolutely thrilled.

At present the Rowan tree is covered in blossom and is attracting loads of bees and other insects. The buzzing from all the insects can be heard clearly.
Also in blossom at present is my Elder tree.

That is lovely, Jacksparrow :nod:.
My rowan is also laden with flowers after a well-earned rest last year.

Hawkweed '20 005.JPG
First hawkweed of the season is out, and a bud next to it. Much earlier than last year.
This happens to be flourishing in the back lawn :rolleyes: - overlooked, I'm afraid, but hey ...... :shrug:
