Well, the tulip bulbs are now in. While other people battened down the hatches for Hurricane Sandy (which thankfully did nothing to us) we dug up an area of approximately 50 square feet in the front yard around our crabapple tree.
First we cut away the sod and hauled it off to another part of the yard:
I added bulb fertilizer to the entire area, then I placed all the bulbs in the pit according to the plan I had developed. There are 11 types of tulips, ranging in height from 10-12″ up to 24-26.” So I needed the plan.
|Trust me, it’s about 6 inches deep|
You’ll have to wait until spring to (hopefully) see the rest!
