I love flowers. There is something so beautiful about the look and the smell. I find it difficult to see a beautiful bloom and not smile. But if you are like me, you have a hard time knowing which kind of flowers to plant when, and in what light. There is this website called Curbside Chaos and they have all the information you need to plant a beautiful garden. They have this garden guru tool which lets you know exactly when and how to plant the bulbs you love. Simply follow these four easy steps:
Step 1 – Pick your Country
Step 2 – Pick your location within that Country
Step 3 – Choose the type of bulb you want to grow
Step 4 – Check out the Planting Guide that shows you how to plant your bulbs
Here's what came up when I tried it out:
Right now "Bulbs. Dig. Drop. Done." is giving away a $5,000 yard makeover, and all you have to do to enter is submit a picture of your yard. In addition to the yard makeover, the winner will receive a visit from Taniya Nayak (@TaniyaNayak on Twitter). She will go through and give the winner tips on the best way to update their yard, including ideas for incorporating flower bulbs into the winners landscape. You can visit www.digdropdone.com to learn more about this contest and to check out all their tips. Also, for every share on Twitter, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together - the nation’s leading nonprofit, working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities.
They also have several different women on their site who offer their tips for gardening, and after reading their profiles, I discovered that I identify most with Marcy, the super mom. Like her, I would rather spend time with my kids than gardening, but that doesn't mean I don't want beautiful flowers in my yard. (or flowerbox since I technically don't have a yard right now) Simply and easy is perfect for me like it is for her.
Which women do you most identify with?
