YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY SPRING BULBS. From the early March aconites to the April and May hyacinths and tulips, bulbs offer blooms at a time when color means so much to our winter-weary souls. And you don’t have to wait for the snow to melt to enjoy them, either. For most can be forced to bloom indoors. To encourage you to plant more bulbs this fall, I’ve purchased a $50 shopping-spree at Easy To Grow Bulbs (dot) com. Would you like a chance to win it?

2. Post a comment below, mentioning the bulbs you love. Maybe you can let me know if you plan to force something for winter bloom indoors. In any event, be sure to include your email contact info or at least a part of it (i.e., kevinlovestulips@) along with your comment. Otherwise, if Random.org selects your comment number, I won’t be able to contact you.

What will $50 buy you at Easy To Grow Bulbs? Well, a wide variety of fascinating bulbs that you will never find at generic garden centers. Have a look at their online catalog.
And remember, you don’t have to wait for spring to enjoy a parade of color and scent. You can force any number of bulbs — fragrant freesias, daffodils, and hyacinths among them — to bloom indoors, just as I do.
