Spring is my favorite season of the year. I spend my spring mornings sitting on the front porch, sipping coffee and admiring the newly blooming flowers. Of course those flowers usually belong to the neighbors as I am always to busy (or maybe I'm just to lazy) to plant bulbs in the fall.
However, this year will be different. After visiting www.digdropdone.com I have learned that it really is as easy as digging a hole, dropping the bulb in, and your DONE!! I checked out Curbside Chaos and tried out the Garden Guru Tool located at the bottom left of the screen. This tool is amazing! It helps you figure out which bulb is perfect for your home depending upon where you live and it is so easy to use.
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.
The best part of www.digdropdone.com are the three Dig, Drop, Done ladies. Each one has great advice on gardening and their humor adds so much fun to the site. I identify with Marcy the most. She is a super mom who is always trying to find a simpler way to do things due to her super busy schedule.
Bulbs are not just for gardeners. A friend of mine uses potted bulbs as a center piece for her kitchen table. A couple other ideas would be to add a pop of color to your front porch, or give them as a gift to a fellow bulb lover. Let your kids help and use the opportunity to teach them about how plants grow.
Last year Curbside Chaos held a contest for a $5000 yard makeover. I watched the video of the lucky winner which you can view at their website. How fun would that be to win? What would you do with a $5000 yard makeover? I would definitely include some outdoor seating around a fire pit and lots of beautiful flowers.
