I made the mistake of planting the first year in pods, then transfering to the garden. Big mistake they all went to seed but this year they are all doing well, planted straight into the growing position. I was a little late with planting and they have a way to go. That is why 4 out of 5 marks not 5 out of 5. They are now out of date seed and I planted a new row three weeks ago on the allotment. Taking a chance they are all coming up we shall see if I get any bulbs.
