Being creative with muscari: update

Months ago I made some chicken wire cones, lined them with mind-your-own-business and panted them with muscari bulbs: 300 in each. As promised, I am now showing the results. The cones are not quite at their peak because the lower bulbs are not quite in bloom and only one spike from each bulb has yet emerged. I think the lower bulbs are a bit later because there is more compost and so it is cooler than at the top. Anyway, here is a reminder of what I did and how they turned out.

      Thank you. To be honest I think I should have put more bulbs in but it looks as I inagined.
