Still Time to Plant your Spring Flowering Bulbs in Containers!

Spring Bulbs in Containers Experiment
Ever wonder about how to overwinter your spring bulbs that you plant in containers? Well, here at NGB we did a little experiment to see just what would happen if you keep the planted container outside (somewhat protected), or in an attached or unattached garage.  Check out the video on how we did it and we will let you know how it turns out next spring…

Daffodils, a perennial spring favorite, are easy to plant, require little care and continue to multiply each year!

Bringing the spring “sunshine” to your garden with daffodils planted for early to late spring flowering.

    • Good question. As far as I know, the National Garden Bureau never published their results. Either someone dropped the ball or it didn’t go well or I just need to catch up on my reading. My personal guess based on my years of gardeningbwould be that the more protected the pot is from the cold, the better the results. Additionally, location is key – are we protecting in a warmer winter area like Tennessee, or in the middle of Minnesota? ETC.
