Planting Spring Bulbs in the LGarden

October 19, 2017

 

 

Growing Spring bulbs in containers is a fantastic solution for gardeners with limited spaces, or for those who want to decorate their decks or patios with the beautiful colors and lovely fragrances of spring-blooming bulbs.

Growing bulbs in containers is easy. You can grow virtually any bulb, and you can mix different types of bulbs together.

The LGarden is a perfect container for planting bulbs outdoors.  It can hold enough soil to insulate the bulbs in cooler climates, and the LGarden has drainage holes so that excess water can escape.

Plant your bulbs in the Fall for Spring flowering.  Fill your LGarden with a high-quality potting mix and plant your bulbs approximately 6 or 7 inches deep for tulips and daffodils, and 4 or 5 inches deep for smaller bulbs such as crocus and muscari. Space your bulbs about ½” apart.  In extreme climates it is recommended that you insulate the top of your LGarden with Straw or Mulch for additional protection from freezing, or simply roll your planted LGarden into the Garage.  Water your bulbs well after planting.

Once temperatures begin to warm in spring, you can then compliment your planting of spring bulbs with cool-season annuals such as lettuce, Swiss chard, pansy, viola, nemesia, or African daisy.  You will know Spring is coming when you see these flowers begin to sprout out of the soil.
