So, while many folks are all spooled up for the Superbowl, I was busy outside, in the sunshine, potting up a whole bunch of bulbs. I had great success last year when I discovered dozens of tulips lurking in the garage – in February. I planted them in the big pots on the patio, mulched them well, watered them in, and shazam!!!..they were gorgeous.
So, this year I ordered bulbs for planting in patio pots: the allium karataviense to go w/the iris Eye of the Tiger. The purple crocus are now underplanted beneath a Tiger Eye sumac. Carmine and Black Parrot tulips fill up the tall pots on the front porch. Stay tuned.
