OT: My bulbs are all planted.
I am so happy that my bulbs are finially all planted. It really was a temendous amount of work.
Of course I have been working on planting these bulbs starting in October and thru most of November. But FINIALLY I got finished yesterday. Was too tired to post about it yesterday.
Earlier (in October) I had posted that I had bought 4,144 bulbs. But THAT was before I added two more bulb orders. One from Bloomingbulb.com and one from Scheepers. That put my bulb total at 4,999 bulbs. I can hardly believe it. I really must be completely daft!
800 dutchgrown direct from holland
72 Brecks (already planted)
187 American Meadows
660 Brent& Beckies
1,600 Van Engelen
Bulbs break down as tulips for the most common, then crocus. Numbers-
Iris Reticulata- 200
Dutch Iris- 170
It all adds up to 4,999 bulbs.
