Bulb planting weekend – Part I

I’ve mentioned before that I want to have a spring garden filled with gorgeous blooms that smell heavenly and the last two months whilst visiting the blogs of our new gardening friends in the Northern Hemisphere, their wonderful gardens filled with daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, crocus, narcissus and irises have had me waiting patiently for the Easter Weekend to sink my bulbs into the ground.

New to gardening, bulb planting is something I’ve not done before so I needed books and tools and of course … BULBS! I’ve been buying and collecting bulbs now for about 6 weeks and as the books tell me to plant when the weather has changed –  usually by Easter, guess what I’m doing this weekend? Planting all +/-800 bulbs I’ve collected!

So this is part one of my Bulb Planting Weekend – The “Before” post!

So there you have it – Now you know what I’m doing today and tomorrow! I’ll be back on the blog once they have all been planted. If you don’t see me for a while … well then you will know that I’m up to my eyeballs in BULBS!!

Happy Gardening
