We are not long in our house and the outside is not finished (neither is the inside for that matter) so I have no garden.I have been relying on my mother-in-law's supply of daffodils. This year, I bit the bullet ,without discussing with Hubbie, and bought a 7kg bag of mixed daffodils to plant along our avenue.
Needless to say I have had 3 sessions of planting now since yesterday morning. You will understand when when you see the pics... and don't laugh. I am willing to put myself out there with my lack of planning and gardening skills....
So I used what is called a "fencing bar" to make the holes for the bulbs.The soil here along the avenue is so compacted. A fencing bar is a long bar made of steel that is use to make a hole in the ground so you can stand a fencing post in it while you hammer it into the ground.It' very heavy.
I made the holes and debated whether they were deep enough for the bulbs. This deliberation wore off the longer the planting session went on. In the end I just made HOLES....lol
Popped the bulb in and covered it up again......did this for an hour yesterday evening and gave up. Hubbie came home helped me....said why didnt I wait till he had strimmed? I wondered the same thing. Did an hour of planting yesterday evening and a hour this morning.
And so I am finished and I am going to give my sister the remaining 20 odd bulbs..
The ground I am planting in really should have been strimmed first. But my Hubbie is flat out and I didnt want to add to his jobs but the over growth really made the job hard. But he has assured me it will be done.
I don't even know if they will grow....Still at least I tried...
