First Ever, Garden How-To Video by Me

Ilona

I am experimenting again. Making my first video with the laptop camcorder when I was out planting some of my bulbs. This is beginning level, Spring blooming bulbs 101.

Covered in the video:

  • What a tulip bulb looks like, and what to look for when buying your bulbs
  • What a crocus corm looks like.
  • Good size for a Darwin type bulb: 14 cm; good size for garden (Dutch) crocus: 7 to 8 cm
  • Using the trench method to plant a group of bulbs ( tulips should be planted in groups of 10 minimum)
  • Using bone meal when putting in the bulbs (it adds phosporus and promotes root growth)
