It’s time to plant bulbs
Little time you spent in the garden now could leave you with all summer long blooming with color in your garden. It is time to plant those bulbs that are flowering in the summer, mainly Lilies, Cannas, Gladiolus, Dahlias and many others.
Not many summer plants are easier than bulbs. All you need to do is to dig a small hole, drop fertilizer or born meal into it, throw in a bulb and cover with soil. If you need to give a look to the same area, you can cover it with cool season annuals. Bulbs will come through it. Winter rain will be adequate for those bulbs to germinate and grow. Make sure to water them in the spring so that you can enjoy the abundance of flowers in the summer.
Not just the color. Many summer blooms are full of fragrance too. More fragrant varieties include Freesias and Tuberose. They come back year after year without any help from you. They come in many colors too. They grow to about 30 inches and therefore, easier to maintain.
As with many bulbs, after they give you plenty of flowers, let them die naturally without any cutting or removing before foliage die. They multiply in numbers and comeback again the next year.
