I know that Summer is just about over but that doesn’t mean we have to stop gardening. In fact, Fall is the perfect time to to plant for next Spring! Bulbs are the ideal way to bring instant Spring color to your home & garden. Daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, all are planted in Fall and begin to bloom in late winter and early spring. Don't know what to plant or how? I’ve found the best place to visit is Dig Drop Done. Here anyone can be a “gardener” with bulbs.
I wish my name were Ruth and I had won the Curbside Chaos contest! Ruth won a $5,000 yard makeover! Watch the video here, Curbside Chaos and see how they loaded her up with bulbs, perennials and shrubs.
Be still my heart! I can't even imagine the fun I would have with that prize!
I found that I am most like Evelyn. Evelyn is an empty nester just like me with more time on her hands to spend gardening.
At Curbside Chaos you can use the Garden Guru Tool. This tool will help you figure out which bulb is perfect for your home depending upon where you live! Just follow these easy steps:
Step 1 – Pick your Country
Step 2 – Pick your location within that Country
Step 3 – Choose the type of bulb you want to grow
Step 4 – Check out the Planting Guide that shows you how to plant your bulbs.
And voila! You now know what you should and shouldn't plant and how to plant them! Easy peasy!
What's great about bulbs too is, that even if you don't have a yard, you can grow them indoors! I plan to pot up some narcissus so that they bloom in time for the winter holidays and bring Spring inside during those cold snowy moths. Bulbs are seriously the easiest plant to grow!
Right now every share on Twitter with the hashtag #CurbsideChaos, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together - the nation’s leading nonprofit, working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities. They currently have earned over $6,000.00. Visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more.
So, get out there and plan ahead for a colorful Spring. It's as easy as Dig, Drop, Done!
