I’ve wanted to get some more of these interesting little spring bulbs for a while now.

Found these Snake’s Head Fritillary on a offer and the bulbs look good and strong. Hopefully will get them naturalised in the lower woodland bed over the next few years.

In 2021, out of the three bulbs planted, only one came up.

Edit: Actually the second lot came up a few weeks later, which was a nice surprise!

I boosted the numbers in March 2021 with some more from Powderham Garden Centre.
