I have to admit I know nothing about flowers other than my mom loves tulips, and roses, when give on no special occasion whatsoever, makes my day. So when I was approached by Dip, Drop, Done. to learn about using bulbs in a garden for year round beauty I was interested.
This past year I said we were going to put some serious dough into our landscaping. But what did we do? Bought some new appliances and enjoyed our time on the lake all summer. So I am vowing again to do it this year. I have always been intrigued by bulbs, especially the ones that flower every year. It seems like it would be easy for someone who doesn’t enjoy working in the yard. The one thing I knew about bulbs was that you had to plant in the fall… or did I? Reading the Dig, Drop Zone I learned…
Did you know it is not too late to plant? Who want to take the challenge with me and hope for some spring blooms? I will if you will! Dig, Drop, Done. also is in cahoots with a site called Curbside Chaos. Curbside Chaos has an awesome “garden guru” tool on the bottom left. On it you pick where you live (by color) and click on your coordinating color. It will tell you how and when to plant your bulbs. I want some allium this year and look…I can still plant some. Curbside Chaos also wants to give someone a $5000 yard makeover. They will be picking a yard in desperate need of attention to receive some one-on-one time with Taniya Nayak! She’ll come to your yard and help you spend $5000 on a yard makeover! That would be so awesome!
Also For every share on Twitter, “Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done.” will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together – the nation’s leading nonprofit, working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities.
