Woolworths is a great shop! We did this last year, went in and managed to pick up a whole load of reduced plants for a quick sale. Last time it really was the dregs well past it, and we didn’t have a great deal of success although I am keeping my fingers crossed that some of the bulbs will show up this year.
They should I suppose by this time of the year if in the ground have green shoots on, but none of them do apart from one little bit of green spotted. I have put them all in some water until I have time to plant at the weekend, and we will see. In total, it has cost 2 pounds for four bushes, so you can’t loose.
