Dividing Perennials:

It’s high time to turn one fine perennial into a dozen. Don’t let anyone tell you this or that plant can’t be divided or the time’s not right. They all can and now is a perfect time. In this webinar we broadcast from our garage so we can supplement our photographic how-to of dozens of species with right-now division of freshly dug plants. Use this link to join us

Links to What's Up this week

We’ve been working this week on a Q&A Transcript from our most recent webinar. We post these Q&A transcripts on our Webinar Audience Notes page where everyone can download them, along with detailed outlines from the webinars.

Two topics in this Q&A begged to be released right away, with flags waving – red flags that might change your mind about planting certain new bulbs and also help you make more of the bulbs and perennials  you already have. Here they are, from our Tip Cuttings Department, where all topics also appear as ongoing topics in our Forum.

In Tip Cuttings: Bulbs Gone Wild

In the Bulbs webinar Q&A Transcript we explain how to go about dealing with the worst kind of weed – a self-sowing bulb. In this article we give you advance warning of which bulb plants might go rogue. Check our list and take heed before  you plant those new bulbs!

 

Time is Now to Put Bully Bulbs in their Place

The perennials whose job it is to cover over spring bulbs need occasional help. Dig up those overgrown bulb clusters and spread them around. At the same time, renew and multiply your perennial favorites.
