As the days grow shorter, dream of a beautiful spring by planting a container of beautiful blooms of more than five dozen bulbs! Layers of allium, tulip, daffodil, and crocus bulbs will provide maximum bloom over several weeks. These small containers are perfect for urban and suburban gardeners who may not have room for large bulb displays.
All materials are included. Latex gloves are available or you may bring your favorite gardening gloves. This container of layered bulbs will need to be thoroughly watered, and covered with a screen or hardware cloth weighted with stone or brick to keep your bulbs safe from squirrels. Bulbs need 8-12 weeks of cold to bloom, so keep your pot outdoor in a protected area (near a corner, window well or in an unheated garage) throughout the fall and winter.
Payment is required in advance due to materials fees, and is non-refundable. This program is limited to 12 people, and must have a minimum of 4 participants to take place. In the event that the workshop is cancelled, participants may choose to participate in another session.
Led by Bill Johnson, Hillwood’s horticulturalist.
