Live in Texas? Time to plant some bulbs!

Oct 14, 2010

Well, I don't want to jinx anything, especially considering what we experienced last October, but this month has just about been the nicest we've seen in a long time! The weather is great, night temperatures's a great time for planting just about anything.


It's an especially good time to get Narcissus (Daffodils), Lycoris, Anemone, Leucojum, Muscari, Hyacinthoides, Dutch Iris and many other perennial bulbs in the ground. The next couple of weeks will be peak availability at the local garden centers so you'll have the best selection of bulbs to choose from. Don't wait until December because many varieties will be long gone.

Planting bulbs! Yikes . . . time is running out for me here in New England. Late as usual! I keep asking myself will I just be feeding the voles and rabbits?!! Happy planting to you! ;>)
