Place bulbs shoulder to shoulder across the surface of the soil, leaving no space between them. Then top off with more potting soil so the bulbs are just slightly below the surface. Water each container thoroughly, and finish with a layer of mulch. Leave pots outdoors for winter chilling. The more exposure to cold the bulbs get, the better they’ll bloom. In the South, bulbs in containers will bloom better than bulbs in the ground because cold air envelopes the pots, reaching all of the soil.

While your compost worms can survive on a limited diet, the larger variety of food you provide them, the more diverse and nutrient-rich their castings will be. Not to mention, they’ll be healthier, too. Follow these feeding do’s and don’ts for safe vermicomposting and happy worms.

"It is the essence of recycling," says Joan Gussow, nutritionist, gardener, and author of "Growing, Older" and "This Organic Life." If you have to compost indoors, worms will make it quicker and (believe it!) less stinky.
