Fall is the perfect time to plant some bulbs. It is really fun to plant them around your gardens and then wait until spring to see what comes up. I typically have just done tulips in the fall, but this year decided to add a few more bulbs. This will be my first year growing daffodils.
First of all, I was really surprised at how huge the bulbs are. I was used to smaller tulip bulbs, but these had to be at least 2-3 times larger. They were very easy to get started. We dug a holes 6 inches deep and of varying widths. My daughter then laid out the bulbs, pointy side up, along the bottom of the holes. After filling back up with dirt, we watered them. We planted the bulbs between 3-6 inches apart, depending on the size of the hole we dug. Daffodils make a nice bright addition to flower gardens, borders, or even on their own. The bright yellow flowers are one of those signs that “spring is here”!
In the spring I will post an update to show how the flowers turned out.
