Terrific Tulips: See how to arrange!By
All of you probably know how crazy I am about tulips. I dutifully order in the fall, pre-chill in our extra refrigerator until late December or early January and plant on the first “not too cold” day. Tulips need several months planted in cold, dark soil. Because of our unpredictable winters, pre-chilling helps to give them the “cold” they need to produce in the spring. But don’t wait too long to plant or they will not have enough time to set their roots. You can also plant earlier but who has time before the holidays!
So today, I “tiptoed through the tulips” and created this spring bouquet.
Another find in my garden this time of year were a few Hellebores, commonly called a Lenten Rose. These grow only in shade and pop up around Easter. I have very little shade and often forget to look in this spot for these little gems. Spied them this year!
Sometimes I like to play with the tulips and make them look like red poppies. Watch the video to learn how!
Leave me a comment and tell me how you are enjoying the spring flowers and send pictures of how you use them in your home!
Happy, glorious Spring!
