Last weekend, I dug up some dirt and planted some bulbs in our little Catskill garden. Not many, just a few dozen daffodils and alliums. The hope is that we’ll have something sprouting up in early spring to get our bees buzzing. Daffodils are great because they’re yellow (a bee favorite) and supposedly deer don’t like to eat them. Alliums are just beyond gorgeous. I have zero experience when it come to gardening, so I can only hope that I have done it correctly. It seems like the most important thing is make sure they’re deep enough and pointing up in the right direction. After spotting this bushel of bulbs at I fear I need more like 300 than 30! Oi.
What about you? Do you plant bulbs in the fall in hopes of spring flowers? Or perhaps you force them indoors for some winter blooms? — Angela M.
