Curbside Chaos Yard Makeover

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Remember the Curbside Chaos makeover??  Check out the quick video of the process (love when they stack her up with boxes of bulbs..)

I know if I had won (that would have been AWESOME) I would have for sure worked some bulbs into the landscape.  Because I'm an easy-peasy type of person, and I love that bulbs come up year after year with no work.  When we moved into our house before this one, in the winter, it was a huge pleasant surprise when thousands of bulbs came up on their own in the spring - so pretty!  It was the highlight of that yard for sure.  I enjoy that bulbs are something even I can't mess up - just dig and drop.
On that site you can use the Garden Guru Tool - tell it where you live, when you want your flowers to bloom, and what kind and it'll generate a Planting Guide - how about that for easy!  Here's the one that I got:

Daffodils - spring incarnate!

Steps for better growth

  • Start with firm, plump daffodil bulbs, free from cuts, bruises or mold. Plant in Fall (Sept 23-Dec 22), when soil has cooled off.
  • Using a spade, dig a hole 3-6 inches deep and place the bulb pointed end up.
  • Cover and lightly pack soil, then water thoroughly- and you’re done!
Tips: In areas with mild winters, plant later and chill your bulbs up to 8 weeks prior to planting. Plant in a sunny or partially shaded area. Space your bulbs 2-4 inches apart.
