spring bulbs

Posted by lyvia (My Page) on

just wanted to share my spring fever...
I had my first crocus yesterday. The winner this year is purple. Two years ago I planted tiny bulbs under my tulip poplars, and I can't wait to see them this year. It was

gordon dwarf iris
muscari valerie finnis grape hyacinth
chionadoxa glory of the snow
siberian scilla
pushkinia squills

So I figure at least one group will not come back, and at least one will be happy and spread. I can't wait to see who the winner is!

RE: spring bulbs

I love bulbs! Some crocus I planted last fall are peeking through, but no flowers yet. Every year I plant a few more bulbs, and this year I found crocus, exotic daffodil, and tulip bulbs really cheap, so I'm planting them in pots as I can pick up more pots. I also got some dwarf daffodil bulbs at the garden club sale, as well as some peacock lilies, which I look forward to planting after the first frost.

RE: spring bulbs

have daffodils coming up! I'm getting excited as it warms up! Can't wait to get outside and dig in the dirt!

RE: spring bulbs

I have daffodils and my tulips are peeking out of the soil but my crocus do not seemed to have made it. I may have planted them too deep...I was cold and rushed. :(
