Today was also a day to garden. I had 25 miniature gladiolus bulbs to plant, and I decided that if I wanted to be able to find them to pull up at the end of the season, that I had better put them in pots. Yup, you read it right, pots!
Off to The Home Depot we went to buy some pots, petunias, dianthus, and planting mix.
I put the pots on various stumps around the yard and planted the bulbs along with a few petunias in each pot as well. The glads will get to 20" tall, but won't bloom until mid to late summer. I figured it would look strange to have pots with gladiolus stalks and nothing else. We'll see how it goes this year.
|I put five of the same colored glads in each pot. One in each corner, and one in the middle. I hope it doesn't look too funky as I am not the most artistic individual on the planet when it comes to gardening.|
