Curbside Chaos and Taniya Nayak share with us the lucky winner of the yard makeover. Ruth and her family were able to get the backyard makeover of their dreams. What would you do to your yard if you had $5000 to spend? I’ve been dreaming of a relaxing side yard retreat with plants, flowers, trees, a rock pathway, small patio and a water feature. Maybe someday!
I love plants and flowers especially in my front yard. We have a tiered area leading up the stairs to the front door. I like to plant tulips there every Fall so they bloom in the Spring but I haven’t branched out much into planting other types of bulbs. Curbside Chaos has a Garden Guru Tool that can help you figure out which bulb is perfect for your home depending on where you live. It’s simple to use and takes the guess work out of what, where and when to plant.
Step 1 – Pick your Country
Step 2 – Pick your location within that Country
Step 3 – Choose the type of bulb you want to grow
Step 4 – Check out the Planting Guide that shows you how to plant your bulb
I think these beautiful Alliums might be fun to mix in with the tulips I usually plant. The planting guide gives detailed steps for planting and growing beautiful flowers.
But bulbs aren’t just for outside planting. We’ve planted bulbs in pots and have had beautiful blooming flowers inside throughout the Winter. They make wonderful gifts too. Get great ideas on plant related projects, companion planting and browse through a variety of different bulbs to decide the best ones for you.
