Help Green, Green Thumb
Posted by Holly from Tx on 2001-04-01 17:24:21

I am new to gardening. I live in an apartment with a small "patio" behind it. I decided to start a container garden, and I purchased some plants online. With my purchase came 54 free bulbs. This would be great, if I knew anything about bulbs! I don't know if I can plant them in containers, how or when to plant them, or if I can store some of them to plant later when I have more room. The bulbs are,20 peacock orchids,18 patchwork petals,6 anamones, and 10 hardy glads. That's all the info I have. Any help or advice would be appreciated!

    I suggest you contact your local greenhouse for the best advice. They may even have some literature for you on the subject.
