Time to plant spring bulbs

Tomorrow (Saturday looks like it will be the better of the two days this weekend. It is time to plant those spring blooming bulbs – tulips, daffodils, crocus, etc. You can guess what I’ll be doing. I’ll also be planting some of those bulbs that often get overlooked, like alium, scillia and muscari.

If you’re planting bulbs, don’t forget some of the more unusual bulbs. They are often the first to bloom in the spring. Because they are smaller, you can actually plant them in the same hole as some of the larger bulbs. I plan on digging the hole, planting the daffodils, putting some soil over those bulbs and then placing the smaller muscari on top of them. Twice as many flowers with out twice as much work – I like that.

Make your weekend a good one.
