Mass Planting Tulip Bulbs – Finally!

If anything, this fall planting season hasn't been "normal." Between moving house and a huge delay in shipping times, I feel so relieved that I was finally able to tuck away the tulips into their beds today. This season, I planted roughly 1,500 bulbs. Though that isn't a big number for most experienced growers, it's…

Trench Planting Tulips for Spring Cut Flowers

One of the biggest challenges of growing in a small space is finding the room to grow flower bulbs. While perennial bulbs, like daffodils, will require more thought. I generally can plant tulips anywhere, because I treat them as an annual which will be removed after bloom. This fall, I'm planting roughly 1500 tulips in…

‘Silk Road’ Tulips: The First in Bloom this Spring!

One of the main reasons that I started blogging and making videos, doesn't even really have anything to do with wanting to teach people to grow things. I was SO TIRED of seed catalogs. Seriously, I would plant something based on the photo, and the plant wouldn't look anything like it! I wanted to create…

Flower Garden Update – Week One – April 2018

I've always wanted to make weekly updates, but I'll admit, I always forget about them and fail to keep up with progress. Now that I'm actively trying to get into a better blogging routine, I'll hopefully be able to maintain a better schedule. Let's see what's going on in the garden this week, shall we?…

One of those “Picture” Updates

Hi Lovelies, First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for being so understanding about how slow I've been responding to comments across the internet universe lately. I've been doing a lot of traveling for work, and that means that most (more like all) of my recent posts have been pre-scheduled so that I knew…

“Just Peachy” Arrangement (Sneak Peek)

Hi Lovelies, As you may or may not know already, I've been trying to get a video out over on my YouTube channel every day for the month of April. This is turning out to be a monumental task for a few reasons. However, the most obvious is that this idea was yet another one…

March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at ¬†nearly everything¬†that's going on right now! Let's all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I've started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks…

Planting Lots of Tulips, because why not?

Hi Lovelies, Day 20 has come a little bit early to the blog, for the main reason that I probably won't have internet access later tonight when I usually do my 2am writing - I know, I know. Anyway, one of the major tasks that I was able to accomplish today was planting out the…

Last Year’s Tulips

Hi Lovelies, By now you've probably figured out that it's very rare that I do anything without procrastinating for as long as possible first. That means I haven't even ordered or bought my tulip bulbs. Technically, I could be planting them right now, but it's not exactly a secret that I'm waiting on them to…
