As I mentioned in an earlier post…it is still not too late to plant spring bulbs. I planted these a couple weeks ago before the snow came and went. The instructions are easy. The biggest risk is critters and not planting the bulbs deep enough. They will still sprout if they are too shallow but you run the risk of them being damaged by frost. I have many more to plant and also must replace the ones the squirrels took. I took pictures both before and after planting. I weeded the area first and then worked up the soil about six inches deep. Then I added organic matter from my composter and worked it in too. I didn’t add much because it is so rich. Also, the location being under a tree where years of leaves have composted down gives me a solid soil base to start with. As I said earlier in a post, I like mass planting so I planted many tulips and crocus…some I planted 3 to a hole. This will give me masses of spring flowers just as the earth is waking up for the season and should be very showy for several weeks.
My garden is a work in progress and I am excited to watch it unfold. Happy planting…see you in the garden or the garden centre! 🙂
