As hard as it is to believe, the summer is winding to an end here in Maine. When I went shopping yesterday, I was surprised to see mums on display. I'll be honest, it made me a little sad to know that fall will soon be on the way. It also started me thinking about next year's garden.
That, of course, led me to spring-blooming bulbs. I call them spring-blooming bulbs because there is so much confusion over the difference between fall and spring bulbs. The truth is: fall bulbs are the bulbs planted in the fall for spring blooms, while spring bulbs refer to those planted in the spring for fall blooms - but I've noticed that others have decided to adopt this term to eliminate the confusion and I find it a better descriptor.
I decided that seeming bulb season is nearly upon us, I would add a page specifically for bulbs. You can view it at Planting Spring-Blooming Bulbs. It is a work in progress, but you can help me out by sending in your questions about planting bulbs on the Ask a Gardener page.
Until Next Time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
