Seedy Saturdays- BULBS!!


               When purchasing winter hardy bulbs pick the largest fattest specimens, squeezing them to ensure they have not shrunk under their covering. Also ensure they are free form mold and discolouration.  The illustration bellow is a guide only and provides a rough guide for bulb depths. 


                   Water all bulbs after planting. If rainfall throughout the fall is not ample deeply water the bulbs once a week. After blooming in spring, pick the flowers from the plants promptly, but leave the foliage until the leaves turn yellow and are easy to pull off.
