This year I want to be ahead of the game!
I just know that during the ‘holiday’ season, I will want to give out little appreciative gifts.
Little, festive, floral thank yous!
I planted out grape hyacinth bulbs into pots and, while keeping them well watered, left them in a cool dark place until I saw little sprouts appearing…
…which happened this week!
I’ve now put them out into the light of the greenhouse to bring on their greeny-ness.
Then, it’ll be a quick swap into a more glorious pot, a bit of wrapping and they’ll be ready to be given.
Hopefully, the recipients will have a little pot of hyacinth joy in the early months of next year, which can then be planted out into their gardens.
I am having a slight, small amount of smugness at being so well-prepared this year. Don’t worry, it’ll pass very quickly!
