Time to Buy Bulbs
It happens every year. Spring rolls around and we fall in love with the beautiful daffodils, tulips, crocus, and snowdrops that seem to be blooming everywhere. And we kick ourselves for not planting some in our own gardens the previous Fall. Head over to your garden center now for the best selection. You will be amazed at the wonderful assortment of both major and minor bulbs --- if you shop early. Don't plant yet though! Store your bulbs in a cool place until the average daily temperatures drop to about 65 degrees. Planting time in our area runs from mid October through November.
I'd love to hear about some of your favorite bulbs, especially those that are long lasting. Just click on "comments" below.
