Don’t Forget the Bulbs!

This post brought to you by Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done.. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you plant bulbs in the fall? Last year I planted a ton of tulips and this past spring I was so very rewarded for that! The colors were so vibrant and the sheer beauty they added to my yard was amazing.

It’s getting pretty cold here in the midwest, but the snow hasn’t flown yet. So if you need last minute bulbs visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more and to pick some up! If you live on the west coast, chances are you still have a bit more time than I do. If you’ve never planted bulbs, don’t be intimidated! Bulbs aren’t just for gardeners. I am no green thumb, but I did it!

Bulbs are extremely simple plants that can be used in a surprising number of ways. Did you know that bulbs can be used in anything from interior and exterior design, to creative gift giving and decoration, to entertaining activities for children and families? Bulbs go way beyond just gardening – so don’t forget about them just because summer is over.

    Love those easy to do bulbs !!

    Here in my part of east tennessee, if you plant bulbs now, they are just liable to pop their little heads up before January.
    So, when the bulbs are on sale, purchase the ones you want.

    Then store them in the extra ‘fridge in the garage amidst the soft drinks,and stuff you got on sale.

    By keeping them in the ‘fridge, the bulbs think it is cold weather so they “hibernate”.
    Then after we have several hard frosts, and cold weather sets in for good, it is time to plant the bulbs.

    Just remind your family that those arent fancy onions out in the ‘fridge.

    I live in Southern Ontario Canada on a country property. Each fall I plant over a 1000 bulbs. Spring is my favorite time of year and I LOVE tulips! I have many gardens on my property filled with perennials but they always look the best in the spring full of colourful tulips.
    Last year I travelled to Holland in April to visit their tulip fields and gardens. It was the trip of a lifetime :-)
