A bright and blustery autumn day is the perfect time to go outside and plant bulbs with children. …And once the fun
of planting them is over, the wonderful thing about bulbs is that they are completely forgotten about until the depths of winter or early spring when they begin to come to life.
…And you don’t even need a container or specially cultivated area to plant them. Bulbs will do well in lawns, under trees and at the bottom of hedges.
When sowing, adults can use the handy Bulb Planter to create the holes. Simply by pushing the planter into the soil and twisting, this clever invention makes a hole that is ideal for planting bulbs in. The little hands can then follow behind popping the bulbs in.
The Bulb Planter then releases the plug of soil you have just removed – ready for placing on top of the newly planted bulbs.
