If you are a gardening aficionado, you might be a bit confused at this blog as of late. There has been a lot of posting on kids, family, crafts and even photography, but where has the gardening gone? Well, to be honest, I am doing a LOT of it, but there isn't a whole lot being published. Why, you ask? Well, something better is on the way. I whole big wonderful mess of gardening information in one big bite. It will just take awhile. For today though, I have a couple easy tips for fall planting and a fun new product to share with you. Some supplies and products were provided for the review purposes of this post.
Longfield Gardens is my choice for interesting daffodils like Love Call, Falconet and Cragford!
Now notice those little spikes that look like grass? Those are actually grape hyacinth and they bloom each spring, but give a little foliage "preview" each fall. When planting your fall bulbs, those little hyacinth markers are quite helpful!
Longfield Gardens sent some beautiful tulips along with grape hyacinth to plant for next spring. PLANTING TIP: I plant a few hyacinth with each tulip grouping to help mark where the tulips are each fall. When I see a little clump of hyacinth in fall, I know a WHOLE LOT MORE is below the surface. I have saved countless large bulbs from shovel spearing in fall this way! Save the bulbs!! Save the bulbs!
