Need some pointers on getting tulips to grow? These great tips on how to plant spring flowering bulbs will have your garden bursting with blooms when winter is over.
Usually this time of year, I’m getting a little tired of gardening and am ready to pack up my shovels for the winter.
Then I see some really pretty tulips in a bulb catalog and just have to have them. So I rush off to order a slew of new spring-flowering bulbs.
A little while later, they arrive in the mail by the hundreds (or at least it seems like that many!) and I wonder what I was thinking.
Because I’m really not in the mood for gardening.
So I spend the next 3 or 4 weeks procrastinating. (Even cleaning seems like a good excuse not to go out in the garden.)
Eventually, it gets cold enough that if I don’t plant them NOW, it will be too late, and I will have bought all of those bulbs for nothing…so I finally force myself to do it.
But then in the spring, I’m so happy I did! Many of the bulbs are the first flowers to bloom, and they are a great way to welcome in spring. Plus most of them are so easy to grow.
