How to make a sprouting bulb

The inclement weather has kept us indoors this spring but don’t despair; the talented Mister Finch has prepared a simple project that will satisfy frustrated gardeners and keep hopes of warmer weather alive.

Materials & Tools You Will Need 

  • The bulb can be made from a range of fabrics but I prefer to use a cotton as it’s strong, can be stuffed nice and tightly and can be aged.
  • Kapock is good for stuffing.
  •  A small piece of green velvet would be perfect for the stalk or even some felt. 
  • Parcel string works well for roots or you could use garden twine.
