In-person: Spring Bulb Container Planting

November 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm



Join Jeff Jabco and Julie Jenney for an in-person, hands-on bulb planting demonstration. Each participant will receive a 15-inch diameter plastic container, soil, and enough bulbs to give your spring container an on-going display! They will be teaching the layering method – where late season tulips are planted first at the bottom of the pot, mid-season daffodils are planted next, and the early spring blooming crocus are planted near the top. When spring arrives and the bulbs start to grow, they make way for each other, with each succession hiding the fading leaves of the first. Ideas for a top-dressing will also be shared, as well as how to keep your pots protected from rodents, and where the best spot is to leave your container – as it is meant to be kept outside all winter.


Location will be outside in a tent, please dress accordingly. Please be sure to read the important information below before registering.
