Brighten Winter With Bloom Pads

Make your garden shine!

You want a designer look in your garden beds, but you know that designers can be so expensive. You can try to mix different bulbs together yourself, but what if they don’t look good come spring? Now, with new Bloom Pads, you don’t have to worry about spending your hard-earned money on flower bulbs, just to realize that you got it wrong when they bloom!

Shimmer Bloom Pads come in packs of 7 top-grade tulip and muscari (hyacinth) bulbs pre-set into a biodegradable cloth that simply dissolves into the ground once they’re planted. Dig a 6” deep hole that fits the pad and plant it! It is as easy as that!

The bulbs in Bloom Pads are professionally mixed and spaced so that you get a garden or container that looks like it was done by a professional landscape designer!  They are so easy to use you can plant a long spring border or a few patio pots in far less time than planting single bulbs!

Shimmer mix includes colorful Tete a Tete Tulip – the best-loved miniature daffodil in the world, and Muscari Armeniacum (Garden Grape Hyacinth).  Each looks great on their own, but when you combine the golden yellow Tete a Tete and the deep purple muscari they positively ignite! They are both naturally small (6”-8”) so they form a riotous carpet in the spring. You don’t want to miss this show!

The top reasons you’ll love Shimmer Bloom Pad:

*Designer yellow/purple miniature combo
*Easy to plant, easy to grow
*Perfect for designer-looking containers
*No backbreaking work required to get a beautiful garden
