Oh my goodness, it is bulb planting time and I am bulb planting like crazy, especially if I want my yard to look like this
I purchased 125 tulip bulbs at a time and need to get them in the ground for a fabulous show next spring.
One of my biggest pet peeves is people who plant one bulb at a time. It is nice but the better impact of bulbs is to plant a group of them together. A mass of bulbs in the spring draws the eye of the visitor.
This tool would be great for planting one bulb here, and one bulb there. And I love this tool. I use it for annuals that spread, like impatiens or wave petunias.
The best tool to plant bulbs in a fantastic show is a shovel.
I want two tulips borders in my new flower beds. They will get 5 to 6 hours of sunlight a day.
So I cleared a 1 foot wide by 10 foot long area at least 6 inches deep.
Place the bulbs evenly in this area, point side up. I do not fertilize the first year.
Cover with half the dirt you have cleared and tamp down.
I can plant 250 bulbs in less than an hour. And just wait until spring….
