Bulb Planting..Easy As 1-2-3!

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

 

If you know me whether it be in real life or through the blogosphere, you might know that I lack a green thumb.  It is not that I couldn't turn my black thumb green, I think it is more or less because I am impatient.  I want immediate gratification.  LOL.  Which is why bulbs are so much better than planting seeds. 

 

Dig.Drop.Done is a fabulous website that gives you all the basics and then some of planting bulbs.  Bulbs are a self contained flower factory with nearly everything you need to plant and have a bountiful of flowers in your yard in the appropriate seasons.  All you have to do is Dig.Drop.Done.  So even those of us with the darkest black of thumbs, can't mess it up. 

 

visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more about the different kinds of bulbs, the planting seasons, etc.  They have this really great Garden Guru Tool that makes planting the right bulbs simple.  And planting bulbs is not just for the garden.  They have some cute ideas for indoor bulb planting too.  They liven up a bleak interior and make great unique gifts.  Put a couple bulbs in a cute little container and watch them bloom.  I gave a gift of bulbs for a housewarming gift.

 

Visit their planting chart so you know what you can plant when and how for the best results.

 Curbside Chaos lets you select your own planting guide by entering in your country, state, and type of bulbs you want to plant.

Chionodoxa, the ultimate garden accessory!

Steps for better growth

  • Start with firm, plump chionodoxa bulbs, free from cuts, bruises or mold. Plant in Fall (Sept 23-Dec 22), when soil has cooled off.
  • Using a spade, dig a hole 3-6 inches deep and place the bulb pointed end up.
  • Cover and lightly pack soil, then water thoroughly- and you’re done!

Tips: In areas with mild winters, plant later and chill your bulbs up to 8 weeks prior to planting. Plant in a sunny or partially shaded area. Space your bulbs 2-4 inches apart. 

 

As I was perusing their website I couldn't help but relate to Marcy (not necessarily the Super Mom of course) but I don't have a lot of time so bulbs they make it so easy to beautify my yard season after season.

 

 

Which lady are you most like?
