It's not too late!

I bet you meant to plant bulbs this fall...and then you forgot?
NO WORRIES, it is not too late!

In fact, many garden centers and catalogs, still have tulips and daffodils at great SALE prices!

But, the ground is frozen and hard...oh my.

Fill up your old plastic nursery containers and other empty planters, about 2/3 full with potting soil.

Place an assortment of bulbs into the soil, pointy side up!
We put 4 bulbs in each gallon pot and about 20 in the larger concrete planters.

Fill the pots to the top with potting soil and then cover the whole bunch with leaves or straw, because plants above ground are more vulnerable to freezing.

In the spring, you can plant directly into the ground or just place the pots around where you need an extra bit of color. 

It's always the right time to garden!



  1. Oh, what a FABulous idea Wyatt!! And that straw looks mighty tasty too!! BOL
    Ruby ♥

  2. Excellent idea.....Mm has planted so many bulbs in the garden I don't think we could an extra inch for even one more...but there are always pots :)

  3. Yep, agree here, it's never too late to plant bulbs. We have some that are already starting to come up.... cos it's where we live near the sea side... We do get frosts at the bottom of the hill, so aren't safe from the cold...... Luv's yer tips Wyatt. :-) Freya Rose Blossom and the cat x

  4. You are so smart, Wyatt! We are forever learning things from you!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  5. That is a fantastic idea! We're not sure that even some straw would keep bulbs above ground around here from freezing.

  7. We can't wait see all your beautiful flowers. Our Lady planted some bulbs in October, so we hope we have some too (it is too late here as we have 25 cm - 10 inches of snow on the ground). Lee and Phod
