How to Care for Your Potted Spring Bulbs

Ah, yes! Spring is finally here and chances are you’ve stumbled upon this blog looking for tips on taking care of your new daffodils, tulips, or hyacinths! Don’t worry, your bulb plants don’t need to be tossed out. They can last way longer! Look no further, here are a few ways that you can make sure your new bulb plants are able to last for future spring seasons to come!

Potted spring bulbs are known as perennials. This means that they grow more than two times per year. Typically, spring bulbs consist of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, or lilies!

When they’re in the pot, it’s best to keep them watered for the time being.

If and when your bulb loses its bloom, don’t fret, your bulb isn’t dead. There is a lot going on behind the scenes. Just stop watering it and make it so that the stem gets to the point where it seems like it is dying. 

Once it is dried and looks almost dead, take the bulb out of the pot and shake the soil out of the roots as much as possible. 

Store them in a cool, dark place like a garage or basement in order to dry out. Or plant them in your garden so they bloom again year after year!
