Vice President Charlotte Dewberry and Frances Tidd presented a program on growing bulbs. Some content included:
*Bulbs are best grown where they will get 6 or 7 hours of sun.
*If a bulb is an early bloomer, the bulb can be planted under or by a tree that will leaf out later.
*Planting area should be rich with organic soil and compost but not soggy, and amended as for a perennial.
*A bulb should be planted 3 times as deep as bulb is tall when outside temperature is 40-50 degrees.
*If pointy top is not obvious then lay bulb on its side.
Charlotte created a garland during the Zoom program, indicating materials needed.
*The items that are required for creating a garland are greens, heavy cord or rope, wire, scissors and desired embellishments.
*Greens can be cut from your yard.
*Find interesting items at the dollar stores to decorate your garland.
*When making bows, wired ribbon works best as it is easier to tweak.
