Bulbs and pansies
How to get a Springtime show in your pots and containers, year after year!
Both Violas and daffodils are the hardiest of Springtime flowers. Both are deer resistant and it’s a very sad deer that takes a bite of any daffodil, part of the toxic Narcissus family. Miniature daffodil because of their small scale and loose and airy seeming root system are perfect bulb companions. Other bulbs to choose are Grape hyacinths, Freesias, Checkerbloom, Snowdrops and Scilla.
To replant, here’s what I did:
First the soil was loosed carefully with a trowel and shaken into a container. This uncovered the tiny shoots!

That’s all! Now we just wait…through rain and snow…
