Almost time for the annual display of crocus – this photograph taken on 2nd March last year (at RHS Wisley). The displays at Kew should be even more extensive, with several hundred thousand new bulbs being added in the last few years.
2010 and 2011 were both pretty dry years and the annual show was under threat from abnormally low rainfall. Lots of bulbs coming up ‘blind’ (affecting naturalised plantings of daffodils too). 2012 was abnormally wet, so we will see what effect this has on the display.
