Fall Planting

September 19th, 2018

I was at Sam’s Club last week and spotted some bulbs and peonies for $16. I’ve purchased bulbs and bare rooted plants at Sam’s before, they’ve always grown well. Since they were such a great price, I decided to get them. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to purchase smaller amounts of things to give them a try. Typically, I order my bulbs wholesale from Van Engelen because it’s so much cheaper, but you get a lot of each variety.

I’ll be interested to see what some of these unusual bulbs look like, particularly the nectaroscordum, stay tuned, I’ll definitely be sharing photos.

What new plants are you trying out this fall?

    Susy, no plans for me to plant more Spring bulbs. I have many that serve me well every year.I totally went through my Spring flower bed a couple years ago.and it is still beautiful in the Spring. I am thinking about setting containers over the bed when the foliage dries up from the Spring bulbs. I just have to figure out what kind of flowers to plant that will flower all through the summer or I can just change out the containers as the summer progresses. Flowering containers is a new concept for me. It sounds like the perfect answer for the dead space from Spring bulbs.

    Have a great day in the Maine sun.
