Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done.

This post brought to you by Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done.  All opinions are 100% mine.

When I think of spring flowers and adding color to my yard, I usually think about heading to the store once all the snow is gone and buying some already-blooming flowers.  However, I recently learned a bit more about bulbs and I'm definitely rethinking my ways.  

Do you know how easy it is to plant bulbs?  Do you know how many kinds there are?  Do you know you can grow them inside as well and even store them in the fridge for a while?  You can visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more and answer any bulb-related question you can think of.  Doesn't this picture make you want to learn a little more?

The site is really easy to use and there are funny videos from three different characters.  They each show you different ways to use and incorporate bulbs into your home and yard.  I got a kick out of Marcy the Super Mom.

Right now "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done" is also having a contest.  Just visit Curbside Chaos for the full set of details.  All you do to enter is submit a photo of your front yard and you could win a $5000 yard makeover and a visit from Taniya Nayak (who will help you with the makeover).  Sweet, huh?

And while you're there check out the "garden guru" section.  It can help you decide what to plant and tell you when and how.  You just pick your country, select your area, select a picture of the plant you want, and then it gives you all the instructions.  It's like having a sweet lady next door with gardening experience to help you out.

Mine said I could plant this beautiful crocus and it would bloom in April.

And for every share on Twitter, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together, a non-profit organization trying to revitalize communities.

So if your yard needs a bit of color go read up a little on bulbs at www.digdropdone.com  and if it needs a lot of help enter the conest at Curbside Chaos.  

Thanks for dropping in.

Brings back memories of my mom, she would hide bulbs all in our woods and as soon as it started to thaw we would start trying to find them all. It was always so much fun!

Thanks for sharing this. I'll definitely have to check it out. I have what I call an "experimental" garden due to my lack of a green thumb and two little kids who like to help (help=dig). I just planted some bulbs in December and a few crocuses are beginning to bloom. I posted a photo of one on my blog: http://sunnystitching.blogspot.com/

Crocuses are my favorite spring flower! They are first up and I think the happiest. My next favorite is the daffodil. They are simple and sweet and the yellow ones are in my favorite color. Funny thing is that I don't care for yellow crocuses.

I love crocuses. Last year I planted 100 bulbs and after the squirrels were done, I had one flower in the spring. This year I tried the supposedly squirrel-resistant "tommisianus" crocuses. Haven't seen too much digging going on, so I am hopeful.

I need to win this yard makeover...we are renting and the homeowners didn't take care of the yard at all! We don't have the budget to do much ourselves so you can bet I'll be entering!
Oh and I totally just bought some bulbs from Target that once I'm able will get put out by our mailbox...I'm going to plant them inside first. Thanks for the link to the bulb website, I have lots of questions that I'm sure I'll find the answers to there!
