Companions, a Potty Mouth and a Fall Preview
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!
