Lots of beautiful flowers and plants grow from bulbs, and a lot of them need special care. Learn all about the art of planting bulbs, and nursing them into beautiful plants with this site. Not only can you learn the Basics, but you will also learn about Spring, Summer, Cut, and read some really helpful Guides.
The Basics — This where you’ll learn exactly what a bulb is, or isn’t for that matter, and that most people use the term incorrectly and are actually referring to something else. Now the term has a general meaning as well because so many people call all plants that have underground food storing systems bulbs.
“Bulbs fall generally into two groups: spring-flowering (which are planted in the fall) and summer-flowering (which are planted in the spring). A more accurate grouping, however, divides bulbs into hardy and tender varieties.”
“Spring-Flowering Bulbs are Hardy; Summer-Flowering are Tender.”
The Guides — The guides are broken up into sections: Summer-flowering, Spring-flowering, Landscaping, US Bulb Planting Region. Each guide has tons of information on the particular subject as well as practical guidance.
The Spring — You guessed it this section will tell you all you need to know about those spring-flowering bulbs, with some great tips and troubleshooting advice.
The Summer — You guessed it this section will tell you all you need to know about those summer-flowering bulbs, with some great tips and troubleshooting advice.
The Cut — This will tell you how to care for flowers that are bulbs but were cut for flower arrangements and potted bulbs as well.
I love this site, it made me want to rush out and buy some bulbs to plant, and I probably will plant some spring-flowering bulbs in the fall of this year. Enjoy!
