Indoor Tulip Container Garden

For many years, I’ve wanted to grow tulips but hadn’t gotten around to it. Finally, while shopping at my local dollar store, I had no more excuses. I bought several tiny bags of tulip bulbs and a few bags of potting soil, each for a dollar, and used the several small containers that I’d kept in storage for years (following previous failed attempts at growing indoor orchids – my current indoor orchids are thriving, however).

I simply added them to my bathroom container garden and they have, I am happy to report, shown signs of healthy growth of emergent leaves. Check out the tiny green spears pushing their way out into the world! Because I am generally low-tech and thrifty, check out my “highly advanced” labeling system: rubber bands wrapped around the paper tag with colorful photos of mature tulips to keep track of which flowers will grow in each container!

I am very excited that these tulips bulbs were very much alive and readily available in my dollar store and am looking forward to a bathroom filled with tulips in the coming months, to keep my orchids and amaryllis plants company!

Shopping Tip: You can always start with buying one bag of tulip bulbs from the dollar store – in my case, each bag contains three bulbs. The bag of potting soil was also one dollar, so for two dollars and change, you can create a modest but beautiful indoor tulip container garden!
