Cheating with Fall Flower bulbs!

As most of you probably already know, most fall planted bulbs require 10-17 weeks of  chilling (temperatures consistently below 55 degrees F) in order to grow and bloom correctly in the spring.  In the USDA Hardiness Zones 3-8, they will receive this period of time naturally when planted outdoors in the fall.  But what if you live in zone 9-10? Or what if you were too slow and forgot to buy some bulbs prior to the ground freezing? Perhaps you have wanted to try to force fall planted bulbs, but don’t have the space or ambition provide those many weeks of chilling for them…

Well, have I got the answer for you!  Why not consider purchasing some “pre-chilled” bulbs so that you don’t have to do the work? Willard & May has recently started to offer kits containing Tulips, Daffodils, Hyacinths, Muscari and Crocus bulbs which have now been chilled for at least 10 weeks.  These kits are sure to bring some cheer to anyone’s home and office, making wonderful gifts!  Planting and then watching these bulbs grow can even be a simple but fun and educational project to do with young children.  The planting container, soil disk and bulb are all included.

  So go check them out today!
