1. Potting up bulbs for spring color in the landscapes

    Potting up bulbs on a late February day. Sunny, but crazy, cold day !!! ┬áBulbs can sit unplanted, (but kept cold), and from my experience – once potted up, bloom nicely anyway. I prefer to pot my daffodils, ┬áthen set into the woodland shade gardens where I see fit and to fill in. Besides…

    Potting up up the bulbs. A bit late, but we'll see!

    A before shot- March 1

    Most of us cannot remember where they are needed until spring when things are in bloom anyways. I frequently plant on top of other plants that are not visible! So, give it a try- pot them up, force them early, then plant out where needed!
