There must be 100 different plants on display many of which were in flower this week. I know the pictures are small but how many varieties can you recognise?
Just by observing the plunge beds regularly, I am picking up tips that I hope to be able to use in my own cultivation.

Beginners instructions for building a plunge bed for growing Tete-a-tete narcissus from the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society.
‘To construct a plunge-bed dig a pit in a well drained piece of ground that will not flood â€“ near a tree or hedge will be fine. A wooden frame, sufficient to hold the pots, on top of the ground will do equally as well. Place the pots in the plunge-bed or frame and cover them with soil/compost/sand to a depth of about 5cm. They can now be forgotten until the spring. A strong cardboard box stored in a dry cold garage or shed will do equally as well. Cover the pots in the same way as above and donâ€™t let them dry out.’
