Drought and limited water resources have become a challenge for gardeners throughout the country.
However, this does not mean that gardeners with limited water resources cannot enjoy beautiful blooms – It is all about choosing the right plants.
Mixed varities of Daffodils and Tulips are beyond easy to grow, requiring very little from the gardener to get spectular blooms.
Fall-Planted Bulbs such as Daffodils, Tulips, Allium, Crocus, and more are extremely drought-tolerant and only require initial watering when they are first planted, producing gorgeous blooms come spring.
Spring-Bloomers actually prefer as little water as possible; watering them too much could cause rot.
“Spring-flowering bulbs fall under the ‘one and done’ mantra, meaning they do need to be watered at the time of planting, and then they are done until spring, Plant your bulbs this fall, and then give them a good dose of water, enough to reach the base of the bulbs. This initiates root growth. After that, let Mother Nature take her course.” Amy Dube, flower bulb expert for educational campaign Dig. Drop.Done.
