Little Bulbs in the GardenLittle Bulbs in the Garden
By gemini_sage, March 31, 2015

The bulb catalogs have started arriving! And what a smart move, as we're all seeing those heralds of spring popping up with the melting of the snow. Usually, it's the big, bold blossoms that catch our eyes; the Tulips, Daffodils, and Hyacinths are what most of us think of when we think of spring bulbs. But don't overlook the diminutive little guys that, when planted thoughtfully, can provide stunning visual impact.

Lovely plant, profuse bloomer and re-seeder. If you had one last year that bloomed, they will come back in bunches so long as the soil is not turned over. Sprouts from the topsoil. If they flowered last year for you for any length of time you will have them the following year.

Don't disturb (turn over) the dirt around where they were too much. Seedlings appear in May to June in Zone 8 when the temps stay warmer. Where mine have been, I have to weed them out in rock border cracks, crevices, the grass, etc.

To collect the seeds, look on the stalks where the flowers where, and you'll see a small pod forming. When they start to turn light green, pick em and drop em in a cup. As soon as the pods yellow, they pop and push the seed out from the plant. Wait too long and you won't get any seed. When they get 12 inches high, top em to promote more branches and a sturdier bush.
