Forcing bulbs

first_imgLancaster says most forced bulbs will seldom grow and flower well when replanted in the garden. Amaryllis can grow indoors and out“Amaryllis bulbs will do okay planted outside, but the flower color will be different than when it’s grown indoors,” he said. According to UGA Extension horticulturist Bodie Pennisi, when amaryllis blooms fade indoors, cut the bloom stalk off near the soil surface. Sometimes a bulb will send up a second stalk.When the blooms are gone, allow the leaves to remain on the plant, she said. Keep it in a sunny window until May and then plant it outdoors. Amaryllis will grow in almost any well-drained soil as long as they receive adequate moisture and some shade. Flowering bulbs typically herald the coming of spring. By using a technique called “forcing bulbs,” you can enjoy many springtime bulbs during the winter, too.“My first Christmas in Ringold (Ga.) I bought amaryllis bulbs and held a contest with the ladies in the Extension office,” said Charles Lancaster, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agent in Catoosa County. “I bought bulbs in four colors, and we each picked one.”Watch and waitOver the next few weeks, the office staff waited and then watched as the stalks began to emerge.“We all had a great time watching and waiting as our plant blossomed and brought a little sunshine inside our office during the short days of winter,” he said. Planted now, bulbs may not bloom before Christmas, but you and your family can still watch as they grow in the coming weeks.From tulips to daffodilsBulbs can be forced to bloom indoors earlier than they normally would outdoors. Crocus, galanthus, hyacinth, narcissus, daffodil, scilla and tulip are the easiest to force.Pot the bulbs in October or November using a well-drained soil. The number of bulbs per pot will vary according to pot and bulb size. Keep them in the dark at about 40 degrees F for 8 to 12 weeks in a cold frame outdoors, an unheated garage or basement, or in your refrigerator. (The bulbs must not be allowed to freeze.) Do not allow the soil in the pots to dry out.After two or three months, the root system should be extensively developed, and shoots will start to emerge from the bulbs. Place the pots in a cool, bright room at about 55 degrees. If possible, place them in a southern window. Eastern or western windows are second best.Poor light = weak stemsOnce shoots emerge, bulbs will produce blooms in about one month. High temperatures and/or poor light will cause spindly, weak stems.Crocus, hyacinth, narcissus, and tulip bulbs can be refrigerated at 40 degrees for two months prior to planting, then potted and forced. The results are not usually as satisfactory because the root systems don’t have enough time to fully develop.last_img read more

A new chapter for Hawthorne bungalow

first_img24 Conventry Street, Hawthorne. Time taken: 12 months Reno spend: $600,000When Pauline Narloch first laid eyes on her Hawthorne home she knew it was a “renovators delight”.After buying the house at 24 Coventry St with her husband in 2008, Mrs Narloch spent 12 months transforming the old 1920s art deco house into a entertainer’s home.“We lived here for a year before we changed anything. It took us about two years to start,” Mrs Narloch said. BEFORE: 24 Coventry Street, Hawthorne when it was bought by the Narlochs.“I was diagnosed with breast cancer just as we moved in, so a lot of our ideas for our renovations ended up changing. AFTER: How it looks today.“The house is on top of a hill and exposed to north-east breezes so we ended up putting in a lot more glass than we had planned. We originally wanted to put in verandas.”She said when they bought the home, the kitchen and bathrooms were of original 1920s style with old cupboards. BEFORE: The pool area needed some TLC.“Nothing was built-in and the sink was in its original condition. The bathroom had terrazzo flooring and the tiles were dark and murky green,” Mrs Narloch said.“Let’s just say the renovations were a challenge.” AFTER: The pool after its makeover.While the original house was retained, Mrs Narloch said they lifted the property and moved it on the block to take advantage of the views. Adding big entertaining areas were a major part of the renovations.They also added a lower floor and an extra living area. AFTER: The house now has plenty of open living spaces.The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home is on a 810sq m block and includes a swimming pool and wet bar.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus9 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market9 hours agoWhile the renovations were under way, Mrs Narloch and her family moved into a townhouse next door, so they could keep an eye on the transformation and liaise with the builder. AFTER. Much of the old Queenslander remains, such as the veranda.Mrs Narloch said the loveliest elements of the Hawthorne Queenslander’s design were retained, including a bay window in the master bedroom.The master suite is on the upper level and contains a large bedroom, study nook, double-vanity ensuite, powder room and walk-in wardrobe. AFTER. The new home is an entertainer’s delight.“I just love every part of this house. It’s all beautiful. There are six decks so you can always find an outlook to enjoy,” Mrs Narloch said.Now that Mrs Narloch’s two sons have “flown the nest”, it is time to sell.“It’s a beautiful house but it’s too big to rattle around in,” she said.“I hope a family with teenage kids buys it.” The property is being sold by Emil Juresic of NGU Real Estate (0481 601 793).last_img read more
