January 20th and look, I told you the bulbs would be fine without any extraordinary treatment. Jack Eden, god rest his soul, used to have this complicated procedure to be followed if you failed to plant your bulbs by Thanksgiving. It involved trashcans in the garage, massive quantities of soil, lime, chemicals, geometrical layering, and a strictly detailed regimen of care. Do it my way, it's cheaper and easier. Just plant the bulbs.
Anyway, it looks nice doesn't it? It is our homage to Jacqueline van der Kloet.
