All About Bulbs
It's that time of year - to plant, or not to plant your bulbs? How do you care for them once you do? Can they live inside? We hope to answer all of these questions, and more!
Can I plant my bulbs outside now?
While it is tempting to believe that winter is behind us after a few warm days, here in Boston we are expecting an extreme frost and cold this weekend. We would recommend waiting a couple more weeks before planting in the ground, when the chance for another frost is much lower. Celebrate the first day of Spring (March 20th) with some outdoor planting!
Can my bulbs live inside until they're ready to go outside?
Absolutely! They make a perfectly springy and bright presentation when displayed inside. The warmer the room and the more direct sunlight they receive, the faster they will open. Once the weather is warm enough, the bulbs can be planted in the ground.
How do I care for my bulbs?
Whether indoors or out, be sure to keep the soil evenly moist for spring bulbs. As mentioned above, the more direct sunlight they get, the quicker their blooms will show. Most bulbs will bloom again the next spring.
What kind of bulbs do you have?
As the spring season ramps up, we will have a large variety of plants and colors. Our designer's favorites are tete a tetes (mini daffodils), muscari, and hyacinth!
