Zeal for Petunias

Happy New Year 2018 Friends !!

Every beginning of the year embarks a new journey with Zest and Zeal. 


                                                           




And takes you on a ride with highs and lows in the journey

Planting Spring Bulbs

Growing flowering plants with bulbs is definitely not enthralling alike growing  from seeds since bulbs take a period of dormancy to finally bloom that needs a lot of patience to look upon it .But they have there charm and they could be saved for growing next season .


Soil Mixture

Growing bulbs require very well drained soil which comprises of more of River Sand (about 60 % ) ,Garden soil (30% ),A good compost (10%).

 Since soil is not free from impurities bulbs and soil should be treated with fungicide (Bavistin  powder ).Its important to treat bulbs with fungicide so that they don't rot in the period of dormancy within soil.

Spring bulbs that are planted this year 


Tulip 

   In our region time for planting Tulip bulbs is December  since they thrive  in cold climate to bloom 




Iris

Iris flower is most unique shaped flower in appearance 

                                                                 



Daffodil

Daffodil are beautiful flowers that bring blooms with advent of spring there are mainly two varieties available here one with small blooms that are hardy and thrive easily for most part of the year .Another one is yellow daffodil that brings big blooms are hard to grow .

These are yellow daffodil bulbs 

                                                      







 Anemone


Anemone are easy to grow bulbs that require full sun and well drained soil to thrive .They can tolerate drought to grow .It is better to sow bulbs in water for 6 to 8 hours before sowing for boosting growth . 

                                                               


Bulbs grow well when less watered and nourished with good sunlight .                                     

Updates about bulbs growth will be updated in upcoming posts .Winter is giving chills in northern part of India and soon weather would intensify into frigidity .Plants would go into dormancy for a month.
