You mentioned a flower with “big white blossoms” on Trish Taylor programme this morning (Sep17). I can’t listen back on the internet at the moment due to gremlins. Any chance you could tell me what flower you were referring to?? My German husband still can’t believe that you guys can plant out that sort of thing already – they would all freeze in the ground over here.

That was the white form of colchicum, an autumn flowering bulb. Which can be palnted from late summer into autumn.

It survives USDA Zone 6 which is colder that Ireland, any part.
