Hi folks - as you can tell from the username I just love bulbs! I think it's great that all you have to do is put them in soil add some water and wait.

Can any of you recommend any good ones I could try?

Thanks in advance.

Lights are my personal favourite ROFL.

Just joking, its soon the time of year for the ol' daffodils. Can't beat 'em.

Im not keen on Daffs, having flowers the same colour as lemon curd I find them a bit off putting. I like Hyacynths. Thy smell nice. You should try some.

Hi bulbs.

Yay yay yay i love bulbs too! I mean, they are wonderful things and i can't wait to get planting this spring.

My favourite bulbs are Amaryllis bulbs. They are easy to grow but may reqire staking to keep them upright.

Hi I'm Mark and I'm new here. I've been looking for some activities to try out with my lad, we've done things together before, many things really, but we're bored of the usual stuff. Can any of you recommend anything that we can try outside to spice it up?

Let us know how the bulb thing goes guys.

Hi Mark.

I had the same problem/dilemma a few years back when my lad was 5. Always figitty and unsettled he was......until i took him daffodil picking.

Give him a challenge.....how many he can pick in 10 mins, who can pick the yellowest one, who can pick the biggest one. Then give him a small reward for finishing the tasks.

Your lad will love it i'm sure, and when you get home, your house will be a much more happy and colourful place

Hey guys, although I find it quite touching you wish to engage in activities with your children, may I take this opportunity to point out that it may well be illegal to pick wild daffodills. Not only this but you may well be spoiling the enjoyment of others by doing so.

May I suggest you visit the local cemetary where there will be any number of pre picked daffs at your disposal. I ve found it far better to pilfer these than disturbing the wild ones.
