Amazing Home Makeovers
Goal: Garden in a Weekend
Tackle that bare spot in your yard, and transform it from boring to something to cheer about.
Step No. 3
Fall is the time to purchase and install bulbs for spring. We bought the tulips and snapdragons shown here at the same time. Once home, we planted the snapdragons and put the paper bag of tulip bulbs in the refrigerator for eight weeks. On planting day, we spaced the bulbs eight inches apart between the existing snapdragons. Come April, our garden was filled with buttery yellow blooms! After the tulips' color faded, the snapdragons resumed flowering, extending the colorful season.
