Planting Bulbs and a Memory Garden

Playing with Bulbs is something new with me.
 I have been getting bulbs from random areas in my yard or digging them out of other people's yards!
In the greenhouse this past weekend, I decided to put some bulbs in individual pots. This way, I can put them in different areas of my yard.


I have some Terra Cotta pots laying around, so that's what I decided to use. 
I filled the pot halfway with dirt.

I then added my the bulb that has already started growing to the pot.

I then filled in the rest of the pot with organic soil.

They have very pretty blooms!

I also transplanted some Daffodils and Paperwhites.
Along with Sedum "Blue Spruce"
This area is a special Memory Garden in honor of my husbands Grandmother who recently passed away. 
I dug the bulbs and the Sedum from her yard.

Sedum "Blue Spruce"

I am hoping the Sedum will fill in this area nicely. I also sprinkled other seeds in this flower bed for the summer months.

This large container is where I got the Hyacinths from. Attached to all theses dead leaves in the container were roots that looked like this!

Do any of my garden pals know what these might be?

I figured I would just leave them in the container of dirt in the greenhouse and see what grows!

What bulbs do you grow and what are your favorites? 

Happy Gardening Friends!!!

  1. For a second there I thought that last bulb was lying on snow! Silly me. But that's what I expect to see here. I don't know what it is though.
