I'm very ashamed.

Hi All, I may have mentioned this before once or twice but I am too lazy to be a proper gardener.image

Yesterday while moving stuff around in the sheds I found bulbs. Many many bulbs. Unplanted, unloved, hanging around the place in nets and some with wee pokey green shoots.image

Can I save them? What should I do with them?

    PP, what's to lose. Plant them.

    hi plant pauper  if they are flowers and you have a spare unused space plant them there with room or spaces  b/tween  at leased you will have a bright corner   if you don't they will go to waste      michael

    That's what I was thinking. I'll maybe just do that because it's nice and cool here today. As you say Stevo4, nothing to lose. I'm bound to get something. How should I feed them?

    PP, I'd use a general feed. Can't wait to hear what they turn out as.image

    Good advice. Blood, fish and bone is my go to as well. 

    I know there are daffs in there but there are wee ones and big ones as well. Here goes nothing.

    There are eleventy seven million! I'll be like a hairpin by the time I've finished.

    GUILTY. image 

    I found a bag of 100 crocus bulbs back in March whilst rooting around for seed trays. 

    I did the lazy option and just chucked them in a pot with soil like hollie.

    I'm looking at a couple of sprouts here and thinking I might have Allium. How exciting! I've also found a little bag with a label....early tulips. image Oh dear. I've missed that boat.
