Gardening Tip - Got Bulbs?
If you want to see some gorgeous flowers in March, plant some bulbs in the fall! The beautiful daffodils, alliums, lilys, and hyacinths that you see as the first sign of spring require that they are planted in the fall. Spring flowering bulbs need a cold dormancy period in order to generate the biochemical process that causes them to flower. October and November usually brings ground temperatures to 40-60 degrees, which is perfect for allowing the bulbs to establish strong roots before the ground freezes. Plant the bulbs tip up in well drained soil now for a surprise in early spring!
