Dig up potted bulbs you sunk in the ground last fall to force early spring color.

Keep them in a cool greenhouse or basement and provide 12 hours a day of supplemental light.

When flower buds start showing some color bring them inside to enjoy. The flowers will last longer if they are kept cool overnight.
