I know it's late to be doing this, but I'm finally getting all of the bulbs we bought this fall into the ground. It seems crazy to be thinking ahead to spring when we're just kicking off the holiday season, but an afternoon spent in the garden today will pay off in the spring when the crocuses, tulips, and daffodils emerge.
We bought these bulbs back in September at the Home Depot (they've since gone on sale - 50% off) and our weekends have been so busy that we haven't gotten them in the ground until today.
Besides the bulbs, I used a long-handled bulb planter and bone meal (Miracle-Gro's Organic Choice). My trusty hound stuck around to supervise...
Dig a hole in the ground and plant the bulbs according to the packaging (some need to go deeper in the ground than others).
Mix the bone meal with the soil you dug out and cover the bulbs up. Pat the dirt down, wait until next spring, and in the meantime, stay homey!
