Woulda, coulda, shoulda planted Spanish Bluebells



 Come spring, lots of folks slap themselves on the forehead saying, "I woulda, coulda, shoulda planted ____." You fill in the blank. If only they had planted those flower bulbs in fall, they would be enjoying them in spring. Here is one of my favorites that you should plant now.

It was early spring and I was walking through a wood near Munich.  Gray clouds had induced in me a pensive mood, when I came upon a clump of bluebells.  The forest at once became enchanted.  In the words of Bronte, they "seemed like fairy gifts."  Such was my first experience with these delightful plants.

Bluebells require very little maintenance.  They are wonderful for bulb gardens, perennial gardens, container gardens as well as for naturalizing in meadows, around the margins of lawns, and in woodlands.
