Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen from vanveenbulbs.com. In this series we'll learn all about how to plant flower bulbs in containers. And pretty much any plant that can grow in the ground can grow in a container. There is just a lot of factors that you need to consider. Is it going to be a really tall plant, does it need sun, does it need shade. Growing bulbs in containers can be really rewarding. Especially if you live in a small apartment or a nursing home or even if you have a lot of space and you just want to have a lot of containers on your deck. Or up on the patio or near the house or even in the window. Because pretty much any plant that can grow outside can grow in a container. So let's examine the different types of plants to grow in containers and especially bulbs. Cause I found flower bulbs are really rewarding and they bloom at different times of the year. If you have the right combination you can have color in that container from spring through fall. Whether you start with tulips and daffodils in the spring and go to iris and peonies in the late spring and then on to lilies and cala lilies and all types of other beautiful vibrant colored bulbs like sporaxis and tigridia that can bloom in the summer. And bulbs in containers in the fall are my favorite. Because in the fall there's not a lot of color. So when you have beautiful toad lilies and beautiful amaryllis belladonnas and noreens blooming it really, it's special, especially canna lilies the foliage is just gorgeous. So plant them anytime of the year, even in the spring, summer, winter or fall you can start your own container garden. So join us as we examine our series on gardening with flower bulbs in containers.
