Planted My First Fairy Circle

Category: Starting and Maintaining the Garden | Posted: Fri Aug 29, 2014 4:49 pm

The bulbs were at Costco and in the past they have been exceptional so I found a bag I thought would add some spring color, crocus. After much deliberation and trying to visualize the garden bare ... an impossible task for me at the moment... I was about ready to give up. Then 'fairy circle' randomly popped into my mind.

I chose a large bare spot where we walk and sit with tables and chairs in the garden. The center area is not as heavily traveled by pets and humans. Not ideal for the bulbs, but ideal for viewing the little flowering gems. The dirt under the mulch was actually quite loamy and easy to dig. They are now buried and waiting. Think I will plant a few more little flower fairy circles.

Barb and Eileen, those are great suggestions. I was also wondering about species tulips anemones and grape hyathyns.
