Bulb Forcing Project for all Ages and Experience
No matter your age or gardening experience - you can have a bit of fun growing your own mini bulb garden indoors.
Cover the bottom of the container with soil. Set several bulbs, pointed side up, on top of the potting mix. Pack them in tight for an eye-catching display. Cover the bulbs and fill the container with potting mix.
Now sprinkle some grass seed over the surface and lightly rake with your fingers. Water thoroughly.
Set the planted container in your fridge for its 3 month chill. Make sure the soil stays slightly moist, but not soggy wet. Bring the container out of cold storage, anytime after the 3 month chill. Move it to a cool sunny location in your home and watch the beauty unfold.
A bit more information: Keep your bulbs away from apples and pears when chilling in the refrigerator. These fruits give off ethylene gas, a natural hormone that does not harm people, but can hasten ripening and interfere with flowering when susceptible fruits, veggies and flowers are stored in the same refrigerator compartment.
