Spring is a good time to plant summer bulbs
I'm going to the nursury tomorrow and I have a long list. I'm getting more grass and wildflower seed and some time release fertilizer for the bare patches around the new house. I'm also getting six packs of broccoli, kale and maybe lettuce. And I'll check out what's on sale or looking especially tempting.
Mainly, I think April is the month for planting summer flowering bulbs like dahlias, gladiolas and lilies. I want to put them with the other perinneals I'm transplanting and also space them around the house. I'll get some organic bulb fertilizer and manure and maybe a little peat moss to make a nice bed for them. However, while I was surfing around, I found a sale of summer bulbs online. You might check it out. They have a gladious rainbow mix for $25 for fifty bulbs.
