Bulbs for Dummies.

Look at what I have bought at the market. It is a Colchium, autumn Crocus. It is a bulb that flowers without doing anything.

You do not need a garden, no soil; you don’t even have to water it. Place the bulbs in a bowl and that's all. The crocus-like flowers appear automatically.

Of course you can add the Colchium bulbs in autumn arrangement, together with the last summer flowers. Or place them in your grandmother‘s crystal wine glasses. Use your imagination. Opportunities enough.

When you decide to buy these Colchium bulbs, do buy some spring bulbs too. You certainly regret if you do not. What is spring without tulips and daffodils? Put these spring bulbs in the soil and wait. In spring you will enjoy your work.

Colchium, tulips or daffodils.  Well considered, all bulbs are suited for dummies!

Colchicum together with berries and the latest roses.

You can already see the flower. 

I love these Ampelopsis berries from my garden.

Also pretty in the old wine glasses.

Don't forget to plant them now!

  1. Cool! I love them. Got to find some colchium

  2. Hetty, these shots are marvelous!
    Thank you for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/09/up-up-away.html

  3. Hi Hetty, I have to admit that Colchium bulbs are completely new to me! I love how you have arranged them with the soft pink dahlia and roses and the blue berries in the beautiful sphere-like stone (?) vase.
    I will take your reminder to heart to order daffodils. I would like to plant a few this autumn and can't wait to find out, if some of my paperwhite narcissus, that I have planted last year, will come back, again. I also want to order some dahlia tubers online now, so that I still have a good selection.
    Enjoy the Autumn crocus flowers, Hetty! They will look fantastic in the old wine glasses!
    Warm regards,

  4. Wow! I didn't know Colchium could be used in this way! Really great in the wine glasses :)
