2013 Garden: Bulbs

Collection by Amber Hunsinger


With a new baby, I don't have much time to garden this year. However, I had loaded up the garden with a lot of bulbs to try to create a happy, low-effort spring. Here are what I planted last fall and what came back. Dead or alive--the wet ground from many melting snows seemed to have killed a bunch in front of my house, plus squirrels had dug up quite a few small bulb flowers last summer. I'm still trying to figure out what works where in this garden! (Board in progress.)

Daffodil 'Gay Kybo' (an increasing number of bulbs, originally grown in my city garden, planted for 2007.)  The most beautiful flower, let alone bulb.  They have been naturalizing nicely--I don't know why they are hard to find to buy anymore.  They bloom late for daffodils.

Daffodil 'Flower Record' (only one flowered at the house; a number remain in my city garden; originally planted for 2004).  Sadly, these have almost entirely died out at the house--I am debating whether or not to try to bring more from the city.  They have never handled transplanting very well.
