i live in manhatten and have been bit-- i swear to god so painfully by
the gardening bug, you should see my illegal north facing fire escape
anyways, i want a yard --my aunt has one in east hampton and she has
agreed to let me naturalize some bulbs...its a bit late but i'm gonna
1. i would like to do 1,000 bulbs in one day, is this too ambitious
for two overweight amataur fans of flowers?
2. i have read of soil augers, bulb naturalizers that are foot
operated, and steel pipes (not going there) does anyone have
experience with these tools?
3. i will be planting woodland bulbs like aconite,star of bethlaham
and scilla siberica...i am worried about the soil when i get
there..this is simply a patch of decidouous (sp?) wooded area is
there any advice for things to look out for or bulb types etc?
4. if planting these types of bulbs is it neccessary to first dig a
bed and ammend the soil, if it is not clay?
I will also be planting small daffodils and oxalis at the edge of the
lawn, in a sunnier site,
i am planning on digging beds and loading in many many bulbs with some
bulb fertalizer. again any personal experience would really help, i
have read quite a bit on the subgect, but i have not actually been
there to check out the soil, i'm simply praying it will be decent for
5. finally can anyone reccommend their favorite on line or mail order
source for bulbs
thanks for your time, nina
