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.
