In February, many people are already looking forward to spring. Although it doesn’t seem like spring yet in terms of weather, you can make it seem like nothing could be further from the truth in terms of plants. And with balls in a pot. Hyacinths, grape hyacinths, tulips, daffodils… Together they provide a cheerful corner in your garden or balcony. In addition to potted bulbs, you can also choose the Spathiphyllum (spoon plant) or have the Anthurium delivered at home , also known as the Flamingo plant. These houseplants are also known as the ultimate spring plants!
Bulbs in pot: from autumn to spring
Flower bulb growers already start growing bulbs in pots in the autumn. From February they can go to garden centres, florists and supermarkets to brighten up your garden or balcony (or house!). As long as it is above zero, these plants can stand outside just fine. The cold actually ensures that they flower longer – with high temperatures they quickly finish flowering. Even when the temperatures fluctuate around zero, there is nothing to worry about. Will there be another severe frost? Then put them inside until the temperatures rise above zero again.
Tip: when it is a bit colder, the plants can start to hang. No problem! As soon as the temperatures warm up a bit, they will rise again. Of course, provided you provide them with enough water.
Appropriate colors and shapes of balls on the pot
Potted balls are available in countless colours. Ok, with daffodils and grape hyacinths (or white!) it quickly ends in terms of color choice. But tulips are available in almost every color of the rainbow. So you can decorate your garden or balcony in your favorite (spring) color! Hyacinths are also available in all kinds of colours: from serene white to mysterious purple. And they leave behind a wonderful scent… Create an explosion of fragrance and color by filling a corner in your garden or on your balcony with potted bulbs. If you have a garden and you want to make it even bigger (and happier!), plant a large piece of land full of one or more flower bulbs.
Interior tip : turn your potted bulbs into a kokedama and hang them on the clothesline.
Instant spring feeling
A wonderful spring feeling In your garden or on your balcony, but also at home. Keep in mind that they can withstand cold temperatures just fine, as long as they don’t have to deal with severe frost. In addition, the warmer it is, the faster they will finish flowering. Your potted bulbs will therefore not last as long at home than outside. Therefore, keep them away from the heating.
