    Decorating Ideas | NancyCreative Labeling Flower Bulbs: I didn’t realize you could label flower bulbs with a permanent marker! Isn’t that a great idea? That way, you’ll know exactly what you’re planting the following spring. Store bulbs in peat moss or newspaper in a cool, dark place over winter.

    OH MY WORD Such a good idea! DUH! Once flowers fade and bulbs and tubers are dug up for winter storage, they pretty much all look alike. To ensure that youll replant them in the right location next spring, write the variety or color of the plant directly on each bulb with a permanent marker. Then store the bulbs in peat moss or newspaper in a cool, dark place.

    Bulb labels tip by Martha Stewart: "Once flowers fade and bulbs and tubers are dug up for winter storage, they pretty much all look alike.

Fabulous use of plant and non-plants, nice combination of shapes & texture

Wrap your bulbs in news paper while you preserve them before planting or giving it as a gift. The newsprint adds a bit of style to the bulbs. You can even tie a sting of twine around the neck to secure the paper and add to the gift wrapping.

Indoor Tulips . . . Step 1 - Fill a glass container about 1/3 of the way with glass marbles or decorative rocks. Clear glass will enable you to watch the roots develop . . . Step 2 - Set the tulip bulb on top of the marbles or stones; pointed end UP. Add a few more marbles or rocks so that the tulip bulb is surrounded but not covered (think support). . .Step 3 - Pour fresh water into the container. The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in.

Good Tip ~ To store bulbs, such as dahlias, tuberoses, cannas, and elephant ears, that are too tender to survive outside in cold winters, place them in a box filled with the remnants of old documents from your paper shredder. The paper helps absorb moisture and prevents the bulbs from touching. Keep in a cool, dark, and dry place until you're ready to plant in the spring.
