Buy Muscari armeniacum 'Artist' grape hyacinth bulbs: Offers low maintetance spring colour

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No.2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 8/10

    Ideal for naturalising, these bulbs can be left in the ground for several years where they will gradually spread to form a generous clump. Alternatively, pot them up and place them close to the house (a windowsill or patio tabletop would be ideal), so you can easily spot them when you're inside. 'Artist' is a gorgeous (and slightly more unusual) grape hyacinth, so it's a great one to add to the collection. It's flowers are made up of many white-tipped azure blue petals, which have a slightly ruffled appearance.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm (4in) deep in naturalistic groups in autumn. During summer when the bulbs are dormant lift and divide groups that are becoming congested.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
