Plant bulbs for spring blooms

I am the first to admit that I planted my spring flower bulbs too late. I bought these bulbs in October with the intention of planting them in November and missed the boat. I’m hoping that in the end, I am still able to enjoy some Tulips and Daffodils in early spring and Ranunculus in late spring. I welcome you to join me in the last ditch effort to have colorful blooms fill your yard this spring.

It will take you no more than 1/2 hour to plant a few bags of bulbs. I divided these amongst the front and back yard. Follow these easy steps:

  • Find spots in your yard that will be bare this spring with partial to full sunDSC_0204
  • Break up the dirt and dig a hole 9-12″ deep
  • Fill this square foot hole with up to 9 bulbs
  • Place bulbs with the tips facing up DSC_0206
  • Sprinkle with flower fertilizer – I used Dr. Earth
  • Cover hole
  • Either water or wait for rain

Now, we cross our fingers that we are not too late, and get to enjoy beautiful fresh flowers straight from our yard this spring!

  1. Looking good! I have my fingers crossed that you’ll have pretty flowers in the next 1-2 months. I like the natural form of watering at this time of year, no need to water when it’s so wet out…

    Please post pictures of the results!
