DIY Garden Planter Gift

By Magnolia on October 8, 2015

As we officially close the chapter on summer and begin the annual fall outdoor chores of pruning and mulching, it also happens to be an ideal time to plant a few spring flowers. That makes this craft perfect for this time of the year. These garden planter packages make a sweet little ‘thank you’ or even ‘just because’ gift.

These packages contain tulip bulbs, or substitute Paperwhites instead.During the fall, bulbs are readily available for purchase in most local nurseries and garden centers.

To create these sweet gifts, you will simply need some linen or burlap, twine or ribbon, and the bulbs of your choice.

Cut a piece of linen or burlap and make a little nest out of Spanish moss in the center, before placing the bulbs on top.

Gather linen and secure with twine or ribbon. Add foliage from your garden for some movement and color, and place in a little terracotta pot. That’s it! You can add a little handwritten tag, indicating color or type of flower, and tie it to the bundle. Here are some tips to consider when planting your bulbs – you could even type these out and attach it with your tag as well!

1. Plant bulbs before the first frost. Or late October/early November is an ideal time to plant.

2. Plant bulbs soon after purchasing.

3. Plant bulbs generously, in case some do not sprout or get dug up by critters.

4. A general rule of thumb is to plant bulbs at a depth of three times the width of the bulb.

5. Water well after planting. Cover with mulch to keep weeds down and hold moisture through the winter.

That’s it! Super simple. This would make a thoughtful housewarming, teacher or hostess gift. As always, make it your own and enjoy!
