Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Dig, Drop, Done! couldn't possibly make planting any easier! As soon as you go to their website there are three different ladies that you can choose to identify with. After visiting Dig, Drop, Done! I decided that I identified the most with Juliana. She's just starting out planting. I may be pretty good at having a garden but keeping up with a flower bed and flowers is not my thing. I wouldn't say I have a black thumb but it's pretty grey. 


Meet Juliana the Fashionista


There are so many options of bulbs to choose from! I love the fact that when you visit to learn more, they have an amazing chart that tells you when the bulb blooms, how far to space them from each other, and tons of other amazing information! 

Bulbs are simple and can add so much beauty to any flower bed!


Another excellent site to check out is Curbside Chaos. Right now they are having an awesome contest where they are giving away $5000 for a yard makeover. It's super simple to enter. All you have to do is submit a photo of your yard. The lucky winner will receive a makeover AND a visit from Taniya Nayak! 

For every time you 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. 

At Curbside Chaos there is a really cool Garden Guru tool. It helps you figure out the perfect bulb for you and the region you live in. You pick the country you live in, your location in the country, the type of bulb you want to grow and a planting guide. And it gives you several options of bulbs to plant!

Here is an example of my choice in the Garden Guru tool:



Steps for better growth

  • Start with firm, plump allium bulbs, free from cuts, bruises or mold. Plant in Fall (Sept 23-Dec 22), when soil has cooled off.
  • Using a spade, dig a hole 3x the width of your bulb and place the bulb pointed end up.
  • Cover and lightly pack soil, then water thoroughly- and you’re done!

Tips: In areas with mild winters, plant later and chill your bulbs up to 8 weeks prior to planting. Plant in a sunny or partially shaded area. Space your bulbs 4-12 inches apart depending on the plant size.


How would you use bulbs in your yard?
