Flower Bulb Facts of Life
Bulbs Beauty in a Bottle:
Bulbs are a natural product and follow a natural cycle of growth and rebirth. Enjoying their fabulous flowers means planting ahead in one season then results the next. Bulbs are among the easiest flowers to grow, not only are they affordable, but bulbs offer the most stunning colors available. Even the most novice gardener can create a breathtakingly beautiful spring garden with bulbs.
What is a Bulb?
A flower bulb is really a self - contained flower factory. Within this marvelous little package is nearly everything the flower needs to come to life! Split a bulb open, for instance, and you'll see its baby flower bud, leaves, roots, stem and food supply. All bulbs need from you is to be placed in the ground at the appropriate season of year, given a liberal drink of water, then left to work their magic.
Flower bulbs come in seemingly limitless varieties which makes them perfectly suitable for any garden design or style you can dream up.
Is it a Bulb ?
The difference between bulbs, corms, tubers and roots
Today, people commonly use the term 'bulb' to refer to any plant that stores its own food underground. But, in truth, many popular 'bulbs' are not true bulbs at all. These varieties include corms, tubers and roots. While they all produce beautiful flowers, technically the plants are different.
When to Plant
After winter, after soil temperatures have warmed and last frost has passed. Some bulbs require higher temperatures to initiate the growing process, so follow the included directions. Most spring planted bulbs will bloom later in the spring, summer and /or fall.
How to Plant
Most bulbs thrive in either full or partial sun and in almost any location with good drainage. Avoid planting at the base of hills or under drainage pipes.
* Dig a hole
* Drop in the bulb
* Water thoroughly
Tips for success
* A larger grouping of flower bulbs are far more fabulous than just a few planted here and there. Think clumps of color.
* Buy the largest bulbs you can find.
* Note the flowering times. Not all bulbs will bloom at the same time.
Passionate about Bulbs
Generally speaking, the best predictor for gardening success is bulb size. Almost always, the larger the initial bulb size planted, the larger and stronger the plants will be, producing more flowers. The first year end result will be noticeable to anyone.
Bring home the Butterflies! Asclepius is also known by its common name "milk Weed", among several others. It is a herbaceous perennial. Tropical, multitasking milk Weed attracts Monarch Butterflies that use the plant as a source for nectar. Monarch Butterflies lay eggs on this plant, & in turn, the resulting larvae (caterpillars) use the plant leaves as a food source. Plant en masse to create curb appeal & to help support threatened wild life. It is very easy to care for, deer & rabbit resistant, & will still flower While it produces seed-blooms all season. Starting with our sizable roots instead of seed, they assure a full season of bloom. It can also be grown as a container plant. Asclepia Gay butterfly mixture, also known as butterfly Weed, is among the more popular choices of our Asclepius. The mixture consists of orange, red & yellow blooming varieties. They are drought tolerant & very easy to care for.
