    • I bought some of those a couple of years ago, a few came up last year and a few this year, but I generally find I get a poor return on bulbs, if even half of the ones I planted come up then I'm happy eg I planted 15 gladioli bulbs this year - got 3 that flowered, same with freesia - planted either 10 or 12, again only got 2 or 3 that actually grew and I'm not sure if they even flowered.  So good luck with yours, hope some come up as they're very pretty and they may revive in the soil.  Are they the ones with pretty blue flowers?
    • I'm intrigued about this trilogy now, I've heard a lot about the first book (didn't know it was a trilogy) and loved The Night Circus so will get the first two books.
    • Have had a disappointing experience with spring bulbs. I bought 150 chionodoxa (mail order) earlier in the year. They arrived in August, mid heatwave/drought, so didn't quite know what to do with them. I put them on the bookshelf in the hall, the coolest and darkest part of the house, and more or less forgot about them. They were in ventilated bags, in a cardboard box so I thought they'd keep OK. When I got round to planting them, last week, they had a distinctly mildewy appearance. I bunged them in the ground anyway, hoping that at least a few would still be viable, but it was a great disappointment
    • I read it, too, and think it was just as good, which is saying a lot for the middle of a series, which often sags a bit.  Have pre-ordered the third book.  Love when those just appear on my tablet, like magic!
    • Yes it was gorgeous over the weekend, warm and sunny, I did a bit of gardening and planted some snowdrop bulbs.  Nice and sunny today but much cooler.
