Bulb Rescue

Plants amaze me all the time, this morning I was tidying up and found a upturned pot. Under the pot I found bulbs that had fallen out but had started to grow leaves. They had no soil and still, these plucky little bulbs were wanting to grow.

No soil and abandoned

So I have attempted a rescue mission using things I could quickly find. I found a little old terracotta pot and some stones.

Few stones

I had no compost (shocking I know) but I did have a huge molehill, so I grabbed some soil from that and filled the pot just over half full. The only worry I have is that our soil is clay and not sure how it wil work in a pot.will

Some soil added
Then I put the saved bulbs into the pot, they were not easy to arrange, so they have a kind of haphazard look about them. I then covered them with more soil and gave them a good water.

I am not sure if they will flower or even survive, but at least they have a fighting chance. I will now get back to the job I went outside to do in the first place. I had better keep on digging that border over.

  1. I bet they will - I've found bulbs like that too and they almost always survive and usually flower too. Then I end up with pots of random bulbs all over the place!! ☺

  6. I wish we were at this stage over here in Canada. We're still burried in snow. Can't wait for green grass and sprouting bulbs. #StayClassyMama

  7. What a brilliant approach! I love everything about it. I hope these flower and you are rewarded. I love wine and I want to start sorting our garden and attempt some vegetables - so this could be the perfect place for me to start! #thatfridaylinky
