Back in December, I bought HUNDREDS of tulip bulbs on clearance. Each bag of bulbs had been priced between fifty cents and a dollar, with ten to thirty bulbs in a bag, depending on the variety. I bought around thirty dollars worth of bulbs: tulips, daffodils, etc. Plus, I bought irises and some other things as well.
Since I practice the “squirrel technique” of gardening, I have forgotten WHAT I planted and WHERE I planted it. But…things are starting to bloom, and I’m THRILLED with the results!!!
I thought everything would boom at the same time, but it seems that different colors/varieties bloom at different times so I guess I’ll be able to enjoy tulips for MUCH longer than I thought I would. Who knew? Some of the bulbs are just popping up and others are in full bloom. Some are scented, but not all. There’s not much rhyme or reason, other than I do prefer to plant in clumps. (Makes it easier to discern weeds from the stuff I’ve planted, although not always. LOL)
Enjoy the weekend!
