One of my favorite times on the garden calendar is ordering bulbs for spring bloom. That time is now through Labor Day! In fact, we had a lull in plant buying activity a few weeks ago, so we’ve already placed preliminary bulb orders based on notes and conversations from last spring. Let’s add to these orders for your garden. Please contact Priscilla, firstname.lastname@example.org, to make plans for your order. In some cases, we may want to make a site visit to firm up quantities needed. Laura Semple, our part-time Decor Coordinator, is also assisting with this process.
This past week, we had a tip from Brent Heath, owner of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs, during a phone conversation. Brent expects that some varieties will sell out quickly this season due to the many gardeners stuck at home with COVID-19 restrictions who are anxious to improve their grounds by planting spring blooming bulbs. Ordering has been brisker than usual at this bulb company year to date!
So don’t miss out – get your bulb order in now. We’ll be scheduling bulb plantings between Columbus Day and Veteran’s Day so that bulbs can root well before the ground freezes.
