I found tulip and hyacinth bulbs that I hadn't planted - and now it's WINTER! * Use a container, layer the bulbs in potting soil, and leave outdoors for the rest of winter. They should sprout in the spring when the ground warms up.
Tulips, hyacinths, lilies, even amaryllis should survive the snow and come out in the spring/early summer.

When your stressed and need something to help get your mind right try gardening. I like to yell and complain to my plants as I re-pot them or do my outdoor weeding and planting. The plants never complain if I yell and swear or get too rough with them. When I'm pulling up the weeds and digging in the dirt planting new seeds and bulbs or even just re-potting my old over grown plants I'm getting a great workout and relieving all that stress I started out with in the beginning.184148
