A day for bulbing, not blogging



You won’t be hearing much from me today. Having finished all my bulbs for forcing and bulbs in pots, I’m ready to tackle the 200 or so bulbs that are getting planted outside. However, I have written a rather lengthy and opinionated summary of most of my bulb beliefs on Gardening While Intoxicated. Much of it is newbie stuff, but check it out if you’re interested.

  1. Ah, yes, where but on the Internet could one find another gardener’s ‘bulb beliefs’. You are quite the evangelist for bulbs, encouraging us to not just plant them for spring flowering in the garden, but forcing them inside to have blooms in the wintertime.
