Every spring I look at tulips popping out all over and think I should really plant some. But when fall rolls around I’m all into mums and pumpkins and the impatient, lazy gardener in me never gets around to planting blubs that I won’t see until next spring.
But this year will be different!
Operation Tulip Bulb is part of Operation Perennial. Ever since it occurred on me that
Annuals = Spending
Perennials = Investing
I’ve made an effort to plant more perennials in my yard.
Unfortunately, this summer’s drought wiped out some of my efforts, but that’s how it goes with investing sometimes, huh?
Ready to press on, I’ve taken the first step and bought two bags of tulip bulbs from Costco. I love the red and pink combination.
So armed only with the directions on the back of the bag and a newspaper clipping titled “Bulb Basics” from The Kansas City Star, I am ready to get them into the ground.
But before I do, I want to ask all of you smart readers: do you have any bulb planting tips?
