Forgot To Plant Bulbs? Not A Problem!

Did you forget to plant bulbs? Use the 'instant planting' method - a method in which bulbs have been forced in pots and then planted as mature plants as soon as their shoots become visible. Daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, and grape hyacinths that are almost ready to bloom are widely available from January through March. And their bright springtime colors can be enjoyed for weeks.

  • Planting a number of these pots containing the same variety creates containers full of plants ready to burst into bloom.
