Don’t you love Spring’s first pops of garden color? Now you can keep your front porch colorful for 3 seasons of the year with this bulb container garden tutorial.
Every Spring, I see the gorgeous Daffodils in my neighbor’s yard and I promise myself that I am going to plant bulbs in the fall. But I can’t find the perfect spot and I never seem to get around to it. I do, however, have lots of space on my porch and deck and they are sorely in need of a little cold weather color. This tutorial offers the perfect solution!
The good folks at Al’s Garden Center are showing us how to plant a container garden for our bulbs to ensure a glorious show come Spring. But instead of leaving bare soil while we wait for them to bloom, they recommend a planting of cold-weather friendly varieties in the top of the pot. We love this idea and can’t wait to plan our Fall/Winter/Spring containers!
