The daffodil, tulip and hyacinth bulbs are sleeping in the shed under the sand blanket. Cannot wait to plant them, but here in Maryland, especially with the record high temperatures we've been having, it's still too early...Not ready yet.
Are you ready? Once the temperature drops to below 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the soil, it's safe to plant your spring flowering bulbs.
Bulb planting isn't rocket science, but there's a few tricks to it.
Watch this short video to see if, for instance, you know:
- what flowering bulbs love
- why you shouldn't treat them as "little soldiers"
- how to protect them from chipmunks, squirrels, etc.
I found the layering technique particularly interesting, and will definitely try it myself.
Happy bulb planting!
