The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Hello BIC friends and fellow gardeners! Whether you have a container on your balcony, some indoor plants, a whole garden, or even if you just happen to visit a botanical garden or see a lovely space or plant in your neighborhood you want to share, this is the place! Please share pics, tips, plans and tricks about all things gardening!  

 

For many years I had a container balcony garden with mostly flowers and herbs (when travel allowed), and I am now embarking on my first backyard landscaping and gardening journey. 

I am often taking inspiration from the natural world around me and have recently had some spring inspiration for the Makeup Challenge of the Week and have loved chatting about gardening in our other threads, so I thought a new thread would be nice. 

It’s always so interesting to me to see plants and gardens from different regions and countries, so I hope you’ll join the conversation!  

PS: if you create a makeup look based on some plant or garden inspiration, please feel free to post your look or flat-lay here, too! 


Here are a few pics of my spring bulbs to start and I’ll share more soon (kindly ignore the weeds)!

My old balcony (from the outside) - I’ll try to find an internal pic too:

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

When I mean impressive, I mean IMPRESSIVE @Samtian !! They are also called the “Garden of Europe,” they cover an area of 32 hectares (79 acres). Each year during the Tulip Festival in the spring the garden witnesses the blooming of over 7 million flowers, including over 800 species of tulips. Some were as tall as my hip! 😵😵😵😵

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin Holy moly that sounds like heaven. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

You would take amazing photos there @Samtian !! 😍

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Congratulations on your tree and baby tree, @Samtian ! 🥳🌳🌲💖  The yellow rose bush is pretty; better something than nothing. 🌹

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Titian06 Thank you, and that is true!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Ugh, I just wrote a whole post and accidentally hit cancel and lost it! 😞

 

A few more bulb pics and I’ll write It out again later! We are in a New build, so kindly ignore the mud and weeds, landscaping is to come!

These are called Golden Dawn. They are so cute but seem to fade fast, unless it’s bc of the crazy wind and rain we’ve been getting. Also dandelions. I think they are helping the erosion so I haven’t t pulled these yet!

And a couple of paperwhites from my Mom’s yard - these are so special to me since my mom loved them so much. I’m hoping some more will bloom. I may need to put them somewhere else next fall.

Oh, and the Gladiator Allium. I guess it’s normal that the leaves turn brown as the plant is blooming, which is unfortunate but online I saw some people plant them with other, mid-lower plants that leaf out before the allium to hide the brown.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Love the gladiator allium @sister13. It’s in the onion/garlic family, so it’s just trying to be like its cousins and develop some skin. Your property’s going to be so colourful once it’s all done!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! I am looking forward to that day, haha. I love flowers and nature! @JoSometimes 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

How beautiful @sister13!!! And those allium!!! 😵😵😵💜💜💜

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! They’re so neat! @Saradestin 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 Those are pretty!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you!! @Samtian 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13  I love this! As soon as mine bloom I’ll take pictures! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Looking forward to them @ather ! 😃

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin  Definitely not as beautiful as yours!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I doubt it @ather !!! All plants/flowers are gorgeous!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Yay for plants! @ather 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@faeriegirl Oh my those are beautiful!!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Those are beautiful, @faeriegirl!  I've never heard of that plant before (but I'm also not a gardener so that isn't saying much!).
