"Spring Starts Now!"
Get the Facts on Fall Bulbs at Jim's FREE Talk
Saturday, September 9 at 1pm
This Saturday, I’m going to be talking about everything to do with fall bulbs called "Spring Starts Now!"
With our late summer weather being so warm and dry, I’m guessing that fall bulbs aren’t on the mind for most gardeners. Now is not only a great time to plant them, but there are few tricks that everyone can use to get fall bulbs to bloom on your schedule and not just Mother Nature’s schedule.
Here are a few "bulb facts" that I will discuss this Saturday.
- Fall is the best time to plant garlic
- Tulips can be "forced" to bloom when you want them to bloom
- Growing tulips in pots is easy to do and produces a fabulous display
- Bulb size matters! Undersized bulbs often don’t have the energy to produce a bloom
- Bulbs look better planted in clusters rather than in rows
- Crocus can be planted into your lawn and will be the earliest blooming plant in your yard
- Strategies for "holding" bulbs in cold storage
Don’t forget that I always have a Q&A session at the end of my presentations, so feel free to ask any gardening questions that you might have. The bulb session is free, butyou must sign-up online or in person to reserve a seat.
See you Saturday!
