Planting Bulbs in Spring
Buy Oxalis Versicolor | Bakker.com
Oxalis Versicolor (Candy Cane Sorrel) is a unique bulb with really spectacular flowers! Very beautiful in full bloom, they are even more stunning when they have not quite opened up completely and display a striking red and white striped pattern. They can be planted in the garden or in a planter on the patio or window-box. Store your oxalis frost free over the winter.
"Sandwich" Bulbs for Six Weeks of Blooms
Place bulbs shoulder to shoulder across the surface of the soil, leaving no space between them. Then top off with more potting soil so the bulbs are just slightly below the surface. Water each container thoroughly, and finish with a layer of mulch. Leave pots outdoors for winter chilling. The more exposure to cold the bulbs get, the better they’ll bloom. In the South, bulbs in containers will bloom better than bulbs in the ground because cold air envelopes the pots, reaching all of the soil.
