I checked on the pots of bulbs in my under the sunroom garden and things are not looking good.
The dutch iris are almost two feet tall! All of them!!! In all six pots!!!!! The apricot tulips and pink mix daffodils are beginning to sprout so there might still be hope for them.
What to do?
I’ll have to bring the irises up into the sunroom where they’ll get light. Like I have room for them in there. Do the powers that be not realize I have carnations and snapdragons and stocks and painted daisies and who knows what else to start going in there next month? Hmmph!!!
As for the tulips and daffodils… I’m going to take a really close look at them this afternoon. I might move them into the garage where it will be colder. That should hold off any more growth. Not that the crawl space under the sunroom isn’t chilly. It is. Just not freezing cold. Maybe freezing cold is what they needed.
I have to say I’m a bit disappointed. I was so hoping that the crawl space would be usable. All that space going to waste…. The garage is already full. You should see the pots and pots and pots of lilies in there. I’ll have to stack stuff!
