All Bottled Up
Ahhhh…it is that time of year when we plant those wonderful spring blooming bulbs in the garden. Daffodils, crocus, tulips, and hyacinths. They are delightful when they pop their little heads out of the ground on those early spring days. What a fun plant to have in your landscape.
There is one challenge when planting bulbs besides rocks. Remembering where you planted them. Once you sink them into the garden, it is easy to forget where they are planted. Time passes and you go out to dig a hole to plant a perennial or shrub and bingo…you hit the bulbs with your spade.Here is an inexpensive and fun way to mark your bulb locations. Bottles!
After you bury your bulbs, place a colorful bottle upside down behind the planting. The bottle is a bright and shiny color in the landscape that catches the sun and adds interest. But, it also helps you remember where your early bloomers will appear.
