If you find the task of planting spring flowering bulbs daunting. Don't. Ok, it totally can be if you plant each bulb one by one with a bulb trowel. Believe me, I've been there and done that. And sometimes, it just must be done that way. However, if you are planting a whole bunch in one spot to make some serious impact in May, I have a trick to share that will change your world (and save your back!)

My favorite bulb company, Colorblends teases that you can plant 100 bulbs in 30 minutes if you follow their method. 100 bulbs in 30 minutes- are you kidding me? I had to try it. Click HERE to watch me put this trick to the test as I did for WFSB's Better Connecticut.
You can be sure that little editing was done- I'm out of breath and you can probably hear my sniffles from the chilly fall air- there was no fancy camera work here.

Truly, the only difficult part about gardening with bulbs is waiting until spring to see those magnificent blooms. So, now, I wait.
