Sorry for ditching you guys today but I had to get the rest of my spring bulbs planted. This was the first time I’ve planted bulbs this late. It’s nearly Thanksgiving for Pete’s sake.
I planted daffodils, tulips, hyacinth, and anemones.
I used my empty terra cotta pots to plant tulips. The thing I love about planting bulbs in pots, is that if I need a last minute gift, I have one. If not, well then I get keep the plants myself.
I also planted the mint barrel with bulbs as well, and after covering the bulbs with dirt, I placed strawberry plants around the border.
Sure the potting bench looks a bit naked now, but just wait until spring. It will be alive with color.
I also planted a boatload of bulbs under the pear tree.
Have you ever planted anemone bulbs before?
It’s been about 10 years since I planted some, but man are they pretty, and perfect for floral displays. I planted a bag of 30 under each pear tree. I don’t normally plant red flowers, and they were not labeled, so I hope the red ones will blend in with all the blue, pink and white bulbs I’ve planted for spring. We’ll see. If not, I’ll just use the red ones for cut flowers.
Are all your spring bulbs planted? Did you plant anything unusual?
