I’m having a little spring fever since we have had a few days with temperatures in the 50’s and even 60’s over the last week. But, I was shocked back into reality with the cold morning temperatures today, and a forecast of temperatures in the 20’s.
I walked out to my herb garden this week, and many of them had new growth peeping out from under the mulch. The peonies have burst forth through the soil, and I hope they don’t get damagedduring the upcoming cold snap. This time last year we had 7 inches of snow on the ground which is very uncommon for North Georgia.
As I was cleaning up some bags downstairs, I found four hyacinth bulbs that I purchased in November to force, but they were already sprouting. I decided to bring a little spring indoors, and planted them in my grapevine basket.
It’s not hard, just gather up your supplies. Container, potting soil, black plastic and bulbs.
I cut a large circle of black plastic from a garbage bag, poked a few holes for drainage and placed in the basket. Next, I added soil to the top, and slighted dampened it with a spray bottle.
Next, place your bulb on top of the soil, flat side down. Water around the bulb and you are finished. I decided to cover the soil with moss from the side yard, added a couple of pieces of driftwood and my little purple rock I found at the Dollar Store.
