I used to “force” paper whites in vases filled with decorative stones. After the blooms were spent I couldn’t bear to toss them away. Instead, I planted them in my yard. It took about two years for them to recover (naturalize). I had long forgotten where I put them but then they would send out their white fragrant flowers every December.
This little border strip is going to provide fun and color all year long. The bulbs were all planted at the same time but they each have their own clock.
The Naked Ladies are just starting to grow but they won’t bloom until the summer. They might require another season to get acclimated to their new home. The freesia and allium have also made progress but we won’t see anything out of them until the Spring. We won’t see the daffodils until then either. It’s really nice to see some immediate results from all that hard work.
