I don’t garden much. I wasn’t gifted with a green thumb. The problem is that I love flowers and I’d like to find something that I can plant that’s fairly easy to understand how to take care of. Growing up, I always heard that bulbs were really high maintenance and difficult to care for. But then I came across Dig Drop Done, and I’m starting to take a different opinion!
I’ve never learned so much about bulbs and how easy they can be to plant and care for! Dig Drop Done covers just about everything you need to know to start your own bulb garden. Whether you have a huge flower bed, or just a few pots on a balcony, Dig Drop Done gives you tips for how to make bulbs work for you! I had no idea there were so many types of bulbs or that you can plant them to grow throughout the spring, summer and fall. For most bulbs, they really are as easy as dig, drop, and done! Dig Drop Done even has a bulb calendar that helps you decide which bulbs to plant and when to plant them, as well as a planting chart that details how deep each bulb should be planted, etc. Or, browse through the Bulb Browser and select bloom time and how much sunlight your bulbs will get, and Dig Drop Done gives you a list of what bulbs you can use! Learn great tips from the ladies of Dig Drop Done – Marcy, Juliana, and Evelyn. I relate most to Marcy, the super-mom. I don’t have a ton of time to spend on my garden, and neither does she, but she gives tips on how to make it happen without spending too much time on it!
