Every spring, without fail, I look wistfully at my neighbors yards and their beautiful bulbs popping out of the ground. I love spring beauty, and every year I think “I should have planted some bulbs last fall!”
Well this year, I am completely inspired as I have recognized that it really is a matter of a quick dig, dropping in the bulb, and being done with it until spring. I have been very inspired by a site called Dig, Drop, Done. This site is beautiful, well laid out, and has tools that make the simplicity of planting bulbs even more simple. I especially love the Garden Guru Tool. It makes figuring out what bulb is perfect for my home depending on where I live. It is super easy to use in just 4 steps:
Step 1. Pick Your Country
Step 2. Pick Your Location Within That Country
Step 3. Choose the Type of Bulb You Want to Grow
Step 4. Check Out the Planting Guide that Shows You How to Plant Your Bulbs
A fun and quirky part of the site are the 3 Dig, Drop, Done ladies. I relate most with the super mom, who is always looking for simpler ways to do things because of a super busy schedule. She sees bulbs as an easy way to bring beauty to life, and might even include her little ones in bulb planting fun!
I have learned that bulbs go way beyond just gardening, and you do not have to be a gardener to succeed in bulb growing.
Are you a gift giver? They really make the best gifts. I have a sister in law who has given me the gift of a planted bulb, she made it a tradition and it truly has been one of my most favorite, memorable and anticipated gifts. Bulbs truly are a gift that keeps on giving!
Dig, Drop, Done hosted a super fun yard makeover called Curbside Chaos. The lucky winner received a $5,000 yard made over & got to choose a variety of bulbs to help bring the beauty of bulbs to their new yard. Below is a video of the lucky winners. How fun would that be? What would you do with a 5,000 yard makeover? I have all kinds of ideas, but it would for sure include bulbs so I no longer would be drooling over my neighbors bulbs each spring. Oh, and a fire pit. Bulbs for spring beauty, fire pit for fall beauty!
