So Now I'm Planting Bulbs
The problem with planting bulbs too early is they start growing too soon.
You can see the image on the left where the leaves are just emerging from the bulb. If this happens before the ground gets too cold to support growth, then the bulb is going to freeze.
And then it is likely going to die.
I probably sound like a broken record here but plant those bulbs 6-8 weeks before freezeup in your garden.
And that unfortunately is pretty much here for me and mine.
On the other hand, planting bulbs is a promise for next year.
