The hosta was crowded, so I had Charlie dig some up and put dirt in my pots. Then, I stuck the hosta in and he filled around it. I watered them well.
The two Hostas above were also dug up this spring. They were as sparse as the two I just planted. Two months later, both are really filled out. What is the weed growing around the Hosta?
Then, I had him dig up the spider lilies. The chunk above is full of bulbs--all volunteers, 27 of them.
Above is another view of the same 27 bulbs. I will have spider lilies galore next year.
I have planted six. Here are 21 divided and on the ground.
Spider lilies I posted a few weeks as they sprung up surprising me.
Spider lilies transplanted late this afternoon
Five bulbs made it into a pot. I am going to take the central one out and plants another bulb that will bloom in the spring. In the spring, I intend to plant a short ground cover that will last from spring through fall. I already have the seeds. Don't ask me what the flower is. Do you have a suggestion for a low plant for the whole top of this pot?
My garden guru told me to just put all the bulbs in a plastic bag of water. The bag above is now almost full of warm water and sitting in the sink. Somehow, I feel like this is all wrong, and I am drowning bulbs. What do you think?
He did more, but that can wait for another day because I did not take pictures. Some of these pictures were taken at night.
Is it okay to cover these bulbs all night with water? Do you have a suggestion as to what short plant to grow from seed in these pots that will have spring bulbs and fall bulbs? I am thinking maybe allysium or something like that.
