The other night my family and I were out for an evening stroll & just like that a crisp breeze child us and we knew the summer was over. With the change of season looming I usually start thinking of spring--I know it sounds crazy to just skip over winter---but now is the time to think about what flowers you want to see blooming in the Spring.
We have the traditional daffodils, tulips & hyacinths, but would love to expand our collection. It seems to be a guessing game as to what bulbs would work best. Thanks to Mircle-Gro Gardenieres you can now ask a real-life gardening enthusiast with real-world experience lots of gardening questions.
I would love to plant some bulbs in my front yard and learned a bit about it from watching this video:
Wouldn't it be great if you followed Teena Spindler's advice this fall so you could enjoy the pop of color in the spring? One key to success that I have found is to always use Miracle-Gro potting mix. This summer we used the off brand to save a bit of money--we won't be making that mistake again. Next year we will be using the good stuff.
The pop of color spring bulbs provide always make me happy and make the cold harsh winter a little more barable.
New plants are always fun and exciting, but you can't forget about your existing plants. We live in a high altitude dessert, and trees are so valuable. The don't grow by themselves, we have to water and ferilize to keep them looking beautiful. Watching a video from one of the Gardenieres reminded me that it that time of year to insert our Miracle-Gro Tree Spikes
These tree spikes are great-you insert them into the ground a viola you have balanced feeding for deciduous trees and shrubs.
