Last year I got a bit crazed with my Fall bulb purchases (thousands) and couldn’t get them all in the ground before everything froze solid. I put loads into planters to try and save them. They bloomed and I fed them all season so hopefully they’ll be ok since I’m intending to plant them this year. Definitely a life lesson in biting off more than you can chew.
The result of that life lesson? I vowed to not purchase this year…
So I couldn’t resist a few purchases. It’s not many and there are a lot of small bulbs which are easy to plant. The only things I’m ordering from catalogs are Galanthus a.k.a. snowdrops and Eranthis, which is a fabulous, super early, yellow flowered bulb that I adore and that you’ll never find at a big box or garden center.
Clearly I didn’t stick to my resolve not to buy, but I tried!
Happy gardening everyone!
