Here in Georgia, it can be difficult to grow beautiful plants, especially in the summer when it gets incredibly hot and dry. I can tell you that my yard could totally use a $5000 makeover too! Between the hot dry summer and my total lack of planting knowledge, my back yard currently resembles the plains of the sahara. Well, with a few tumbleweeds and such to break it up a bit.
The back yard of my dreams….Planting knowledge; that is where I’m lacking. But I discovered Curbside Chaos has a “Garden Guru” on their home page that is incredibly simple to use. It will help you choose bulbs that will grow in your area of the country, and send you to visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more about planting them!
All you have to do is:
- Pick your country
- Pick your location within your country
- Choose the type of bulb you want to grow
- Check out the planting guide that shows you how to grow that bulb
Easy enough even for a total yard dork like me!
And did you know that bulbs go way beyond just gardening? Bulbs can be used for indoor decor too! And I can tell you that totally interests the crafter in me! They can be used in anything from interior to exterior design, to creative gift giving and decoration, to entertaining activities for children and family! Bulbs are not just for gardeners!
