What a difference a day makes.
But while there was sunshine, we made the most of it.
On Saturday we unpacked our bulbs, which UPS delivered about a week ago from RoozenGaarde, the Skagit Valley bulb growers. We planted them up in one gallon nursery cans, five bulbs per pot, tagged by name.
Monday I cleared the dahlias out of the bed where most of the bulbs get planted.
The tops went into the compost bin and the tubers are washed, dried and stored in the garage. I dug the bed to loosen the soil and remove weeds and unwanted spreaders.
Them my teammate came to help dig the holes to bury the cans.
Then on Tuesday I cleared and cleaned out spaces in other beds to plant the rest of the bulbs, like here in the rose bed.
Hopefully in April it will look like this!
