When I was a very little girl, we lived in a house where grape hyacinth (muscari) grew wild in the yard. I thought these were the blue bells I read about in old books, but now I know otherwise. I haven't seen them in years, but seeing this picture recently gave me a flashback...they were the first bouquets I ever made.
I'd love to grow them in a container, and I read the instructions, but I guess they're bulbs and that means I should have planted them a long time ago? I seriously need a gardening tutor. I've decided I'm not going to try to do the whole gardening thing this summer, even though I still have the containers. It's just too expensive if you know you're not diligent enough (yet).
Does anyone have any gardening 101 tips to share? I'd like to put out some potted plants that:
A) Don't need a lot of direct sunlight
B) Can survive if I miss a day of watering.
Do such plants exist?! Help!
