Look what I found
So after just 2 days of the snow melting. Look what I found unfurling from their wintery blanket…
Due to the weather not being very nice outside, I have been in the garage making up some practise Containers…and also, because I want to see some Spring colour.
Here I used Pink Tulips…not blooming yet. Yellow Daffodils, Blue hyacinth…smell amazing…if you like that sort of thing!!, Primula, Pansies, Birch branches, Pussy willow…that I chopped off a big fallen down branch (honestly)! And to add extended colour, I use everlasting blossoming branches.
Some people don’t like everlasting…ok. Fake! But. A little secret. The bulbs and flowers won’t be blooming all together and the everlasting give your containers an endless display of colour, before and after the bulbs are flowering. It just gives a helping hand until you are ready to plant up your summer container.
Everything is planted in Potting mix…not the old stuff from last year. But I will reuse the same potting mix in my summer Containers.
If there are spaces in the pot, I would use fresh moss to cover the soil. It makes for a nice finish and helps keep moisture in…although thats not usually a concern in the Spring.
