Dig In Now With Garden Bulbs




 14845

Are you experiencing a chill in the air in your neck of the woods?  Crisp October weather provides ideal planting conditions for hardy bulbs, including daffodil, tulip, hyacinth, crocus, grape hyacinth, snowdrop, and more....  Planted this month, these kinds of bulbs that can easily be potted and planted now, will bloom perfectly next spring.  Now is the time to give them a chance to root into the cool dark soil before the weather turns to freezing.  Here are a few tips on how to achieve this potting wonder from Arizona Pottery?

Pick the best spot to place the Arizona Pottery garden planters you want to plant them into.  Make sure that come spring and summer they will have as much sun as possible At least 6 hrs of full sun is best.  Next fill the pot with good well draining soil.  You can purchase special garden soils available at your local nursery for this purpose.  Loose soil is ideal for the root systems to work into.  Make the soil organic if possible for the best performance.  You can mix compost into the soil to really help with healthy root systems.

Cluster the bulbs into the Arizona Pottery garden pots mixing one bold color or mixing a combination of colors to create the effect that you are trying to achieve.  We love pink & white mixed together.  Yellow and red mixed make a very bold statement of color that is stunning.  Place the root side down with the growing tip up and cover with soil.  Place it two to three times its height into the hole.  Compact the soil to eliminate air pockets and cover the top soil with garden mulch up to 3" in depth.

Use a garden trowel to make the planting easier.  Power drills work good for larger pots but are not necessary.  We like to stick bulbs around potted evergreen plants so that come Spring there will be bursts of color.
