Muscari armeniacum ‘Peppermint’

Some more little grape hyacinths bought a really good pack with lots of plants in on a whim. Planted amongst the primulas and round the bird table. These ones were bought from Summerseat in Bury. Planted in the bottom bed near the other ones and the other, other ones.
