Bulbs and Weeds

March 7, 2012

Here are two garden reminders that will keep your fingers in the soil, your body fit, and your yard the envy of every neighbor.

For summer color spots and cut flowers, plant bulbs as soon as the ground isn’t too wet or frozen. Buy now to get cream of the crop bulbs. Select bulbs that are firm, not soft. The most common summer-blooming bulbs include lilies, tuberous begonias, dahlias, and gladiolus. For beautiful mixed bouquets throughout the summer months, plant each variety every seven to fourteen days.

 Just what you’ve been waiting all winter to do!
