I've never known much about bulbs. Having a background in natives, its not really something I had come across. However as I've grown through my love and admiration of all plants, I've also become aware of bulbs. And over the years, I've plants quite a few different bulbs. The two I started with were Jonquils and daffodils. Two very similar plants and very beautiful.
This year, as well as the jonquils and daffodils, I also plants Ranunculus, Grape Hyacinth and Freesias. The Ranunculus and freesias have started showing themselves. The hyacinths have not thus far. I planted them to add a bit of colour this Winter. However, the way our season are at the moment, who knows when they will come into bloom.
The other bulbs I planted were garlic bulbs. I am looking forward to these as I am a huge fan of garlic. Its one of those things that can make a dish. I have to wait til the leaves die on the bulbs and then keep them dry and then harvest them. I tried onions last year, but I forgot about them and they ended up as mush. :(
