I love gardening and can't wait until the spring to start planting tomatoes and all the goodies we get to enjoy in the summer months! However, I've never had the pleasure of planting tulips, though they are one of my most favorite flowers. They are so beautiful and require little to get them blooming and beautiful. Taking a look at DigDropDone.com, I realized how much I had to learn about planting bulbs!
I learned the proper times to plant bulbs to give them time to process and eventually bloom in the spring. There are videos of three ladies offering "Bulb Inspiration" and I definitely identify the most with Juliana, the city gal who is all about fashion and style. She suggests brightening up the apartment by planting bulbs in flowerpots and placing them on the windowsill. Tulips are simple, yet their bright colors can definitely bring a more renewed feeling to any room.
Speaking of bulb inspiration, Bulbs. Dig, Drop & Done is hosting a contest right now as part of an educational effort to excite women about the simple, natural beauty of planting bulbs! One lucky winner will receive a $5,000 yard makeover. In addition, the winner will receive a visit from Taniya Nayak. She'll give some great pointers on decorating the winner's yard and will give some tips on how to use flower bulbs as part of your beautiful new landscape. How do you enter? Just submit a photo of your yard at Curbside Chaos! Plus, for every share on Twitter about the contest, Bulbs. Dig, Drop & Done will donate $1 to Rebuild Together, a nonprofit agency dedicated to providing affordable homeownership and revitalizing communities.
What else can we find out from Curbside Chaos? Using the Garden Guru tool (located at the bottom left-hand side of the page), you can decide which bulbs are best for planting where you live! I absolutely love Hyacinths and found out that they should be planted in the Fall for blooming in March. The Guru also tells you exactly how to plant them for optimal growth and blooming.
I always thought bulb plants were difficult to grow, but they really are very easy to plant and grow! You don't have to be a gardening expert to grow bulbs and they can be planted in many different ways. You don't even have to have a yard to plant bulbs. My mom always had bulbs planted all around our home, inside and out. This is why I love plants so very much!
