FORCING BULBS IN THE MIDST OF WINTER.
Saturday, November 23, 2019 – 1:00 PM
Gaynor Regional Family Library – Selkirk
A whiff of warm air woke up dormant bulbs in the pot. ”It’s spring! It’s spring!” they started to shout, preparing their shoots to grow up into the light! It was in the midst of winter not in the spring. A crafty gardener can trigger them to sprout and bloom.
Horticulturists call this technique “Forcing”. At Easter thousands of forced lilies are sold on the market.
Forcing bulbs is fun. Blooming plants will give a special “feels like spring” touch to your place.
Plant material will be provided. All are Welcome!
