Beat the Winter Blues with an Indoor Bulb Garden

The smell of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths has always reminded me of Spring and Easter.  For much of my life I assumed these beautiful blooms were delegated to that season.  Then one cold winter day a friend and florist invited me to her house and I was amazed.  She had bulbs of all sorts blooming  everywhere.  It was like stepping from a brutal February day into a little piece of Spring, smell and all!

I was never able to duplicate the full effect of her numerous plantings. After all, I am not a florist.   I have been successful at growing a few bulbs over the years.  Even in small quantity, they do give a glimmer of upcoming Spring.  Here are some simple instructions for Tulips & Hyacinths.
