Fritillaria meleagris AGM

This has to be one the most beautiful spring flowering bulbs! With its nodding chequerboard heads in differing shades of purple and occassionally white, no spring garden is complete without them. They will grow quite happily in pots, naturalised in grass or in front of your herbaceous border, and any type of soil and situation!IMG_0917The bulbs multiply, and can therefore be split/divided late Summer to Autumn. You  can also collect and sow seed when fresh in Autumn.IMG_0916These plants are commonly known as Snake head Fritillarias for obvious reasons, and they are very hardy, coping with our freezing and exceptionally wet conditions here!IMG_0915
