|Bulbs to plant. 10.18.14|
|Before cleanup 10.18.14|
Some clumps of narcissus, remaining Jetfire from some that were still not planted, and Red Devon.
One Fritillaria persica. I do't know if it will grow, so just trying one.
One red Crown Imperial Fritillaria rubra. The ones I planted last year grew well, so I hope this one does too.
A package of Allium karataviense "Ivory Queen". I haven't tried this one yet
The last package of Anemone blanda went around a replanted Japanese maple.

I didn't label where each bulb or group of bulbs was planted. That will be to discover when they come up in the Spring.
The tulips will need to be planted in containers. Keep them away from deer.
When these bulbs start coming up, they will be a very welcome sight. This is one of the first signs of Spring, and they renew my spirit.
The edging needs to be completed. Winter project. Also a walkway.
I added a layer of cardboard mulch. The cardboard was wet. It's fragile when wet, tears very easily. So I think the bulbs should grow through it easily. Plus, I tore the cardboard into irregular pieces about 1 foot diameter. That allows water to soak through, and bulb growth. But weed seedlings should not grow.
