I’m trying to cool it on the bulbs this year. It’s gotten out of control—I’ve been spending too much money and too much time agonizing over which color, which variety, which ones will actually come up, which ones will perennialize.
Stop the madness!
So last week I took just a few minutes to quickly put in an order at Brent and Becky’s. The goal is to get everything but the lilies at ONE PLACE. There are some Perestroika and Blushing Lady (god the names) single lates for the front.
Some Prinses Irene and Striped Bellona for containers.
And some Woodstock and Yellow Queen for forcing. I’ve pretty much given up on the whole subtlety thing. I think bright colors are what it’s all about for this short spring show.
It will be interesting to see if the species tulips from years past come back. I think I enjoy forcing the hyacinths the most; potting them, checking on them, and waiting for them to bloom inside is fun.
