It’s Time To Plant Summer Bulbs

April is the month for planting your summer bulbs like dahlias, gladiolas, and lilies. Mix bulb fertilizer together with your planting soil to give the bulbs a good start. Visit us soon for the best selection and all the tools needed for easy planting.

Spring blooming bulbs should be deadheaded when the blossoms fade, but do not cut off the green foliage yet. The leaves continue to grow for a few weeks and provide the bulb with nutrients for good flowering next year. If you find the foliage unattractive, plant other perennials close by which will give you color and hide the deteriorating look of the bulbs.
