Why plant Bulbs? I (obviously) love the flowers that bulbs produce. They’re so sweet when they pop their heads out in the Spring. Just when you have the Winter doldrums in the North we see the Snow Crocuses peeping out of the snow, the Snowdrops (Gallanthus) and the early Daffodils like February Gold. Here in Texas I seldom see any flowers peeking out of the snow (we don't usually get snow), but it’s not uncommon to have Paperwhite Daffodils blooming in the flower beds before Christmas, cheerily greeting my family and friends who arrive.
So, what are some of the charms of planting flower bulbs?
Bulbs – they give so much for so little.It’s not too early to order your Christmas Amaryllis and Paperwhites. They make wonderful Christmas Gifts and will bloom in 6 to 8 weeks after being potted, so order early. Our magnificent super-sized Amaryllis bulbs make spectacular fool-proof decorations to help put us in a holiday mood.
