I belong to the Durham Garden Club. Why? Well, there are a lot of nice, talented gardeners who attend, and they present interesting monthly gardening topics through the long New England winter. When you can’t garden, you learn and dream.
Tuesday night Cathy Felton will present everything you wanted to know about flowering bulbs. Cathy has years of course work with the former Landscape Institute of Harvard University, lectures around New England, and is a judge for the Garden Club of America Horticulture, American Daffodil Society, Hosta Society and NGC Master Flower Show.
There are so many squirrels and chipmunks here because of all our oak trees that it is futile.
I have planted daffodils and enjoy them but have to accept tulips are not for me.
Spring bulbs may not be for me, but I am going to try Dahlia Bishop of Llandaff next year.
I’ve been wanting to try some Dahlias and who could resist one with a name like the town where my grandparents farm was?
Here’s hoping you have a garden that facilitates the fall planting of bulbs.
So, the burning questions for this Monday morning – do you plant bulbs and do you belong to a garden club? Let’s talk gardening even if most of us are busy putting our gardens to bed. 🙂
