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)!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 - Apparently your hyacinths are eager for spring too! 😄🌻  I love daffodils--a sure sign of spring!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I actually received this in the mail, I’m not sure where it was found but it sure is beautiful 🤩

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Oh wow! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous spring blooms! Those pink ones!! So pretty! @faeriegirl 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@faeriegirl  Nature is so beautiful, these are such gorgeous flowers and blooms! I love the colors, they are so unique. I live in an extremely cold climate so seeing these is magical! I bet they smell amazing too. Enjoy 🌸

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Gorgeous, @faeriegirl ! 🥰  I love forsythia! 🌱  The trees behind my condo started budding a couple of weeks ago. 🌿  The day lilies in front of the garage have been poking through the ground for about as long. 🌻

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Some cute bulb tips appearing! So excited to see these come up. A little worried because it’s supposed to get down to 19 next week, but who could tell my bulbs since it’s been 66 and sunny many days lately!

 

I see some tulips, hyacinth, daffodils, (hopefully some of my mom’s paperwhites), and I think some mascara which I planted for the first time. 

 

eta: I did NOT plant mascara, that was an auto correct from muscari, lol! If only we could plant our own makeup trees!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

This is so amazing, such a fun project! I’d love to see updates! Amazing work 🫶🪴 @sister13  

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

It is definatley amazing to see things grow, what an exciting process 🫶🪴 @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks, everything is really starting to pop up now, it's crazy how much they're growing every day! I do really love bulbs because they're so easy and low maintenance, but I'm also feeling impatient for them to bloom, haha.

 

It's so fun to see things coming back to life. I was going to say it's especially exciting since it's the first spring since planting our shrubs, trees and plants last summer, but I'm pretty sure I'll be this excited every spring.  @peculiarzmakeup

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Here’s my bulb planting log. I managed not to lose it this year, so I can see what comes up in the different locations.

Apparently, I planted at least five hundred bulbs in my small yard, lol! 😳😳😳

I already have a bunch of bulb tips I can see peeking out, which is way earlier than last year, but also in mostly sunnier locations. I’ll post some pics of the cute little bulb shoots soon! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Absolutely love this! So cool to see the details 🍀 @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thanks! I planted some last year too ( the tulips and hyacinths in the thread description + allium) and wrote it all down but then lost my sheet, lol. @peculiarzmakeup I’ve been curious to see if everything cones up.
