Out With the Old
The tulip bulbs arrived while I was on the road.
Time to get to work…
First, I dug up the tulip bed.
I had to remove the old bulbs.
Sometimes I would get the 'Mother Lode' of bulbs,
A clump with mama bulb and all of her 'babies'.
More often, I had to sift through the dirt,
picking the bulbs out one by one.
Some were teeny-tiny.
Here are the old… and the new.
I placed the new bulbs in the bed.
5" deep and spaced 5"-6" (or more) apart.
I replaced the soil,
still finding more old bulbs in the process.
Stay tuned for the end result….
in the spring!
