|FROM WILMA: Bulbs are some of the most versatile plants in the garden. From late winter, throughout summer, and on into fall, bulbs can be used in several ways in our gardens.|
SPRING FLOWERING BULBS: Included in a group of plants Susan gave me for birthday was one of my favorite bulbs - hyacinth. I especially enjoyed its sweet fragrance during gray February days. As daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, and other spring flowering bulbs begin blooming we sometimes want to add more to our gardens. The time to plant them is in the fall - make a note of this on your October calendar!
SUMMER FLOWERING BULBS: Gladiola, dahlias, and lilies make excellent cut flowers; begonias are great for containers and hanging baskets; and elephant ears are striking in the garden as well as in large containers. These and other summer flowering bulbs (some are actually corms, rhizomes, or tubers but are referred to as bulbs) are best planted after the soil warms in late spring. Purchase bulbs now to enjoy a great selection.
