Flowering Spring Bulbs Brighten Entryways

Inside and Out

By

Flowering bulbs may say "Spring", but you don't have to wait until they pop out of the ground to enjoy them. Even if you forgot to plant bulbs last fall or you live in a warm climate, you'll find colorful pots of bulbs ready to buy and bring home.

The Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center (NFBIC) shares the tempting idea of transforming our doorways into welcoming entryways, with displays of blooming potted spring flowers. NFBIC NYC Director, Sally Ferguson, says "In Amsterdam, people flank their front doors or windows in spring with gorgeous pots of tulips, daffodils, crocus and hyacinths. Each entrance is prettier than the next, with personal flower choices in evidence. Creative pots and containers are part of the look, elegant or playful. It's a mental health thing and so easy."

Here are Sally's tips to dress up your own front entry with a colorful instant spring garden. You'll find even more fun ways to use flowering bulbs at the NFBIC's website, www.bulb.com.
