Time To Check Your Saved Flowers

February 1, 2013 Written by Vicky Berg

If you have saved begonia, dahlia, and other assorted bulbs, corms and roots from last year, you can get them out of storage to check if they have rotted or if they have started to sprout and need potting up. Or give them a light misting to get them to start to break dormancy. 

All garden seeds have arrived and are in stock now at Early's.

Scoop 1/2 cup portions, and place the mix onto a large cookie sheet covered with cardboard or newspaper.  

Set the mixture out in the freezing air, or in the freezer for about 2 hours.

Fall Bulbs

September 7, 2012 Written by Terry Drimmie

Planting Fall Bulbs For Spring Color

Tulips, Daffodils, Crocus and a number of smaller bulbs can be grown in our Saskatchewan gardens. Start by working your soil well. Mix in a bulb fertilizer to promote excellent growth and to prevent rot. Bulbs can be planted from September until frost. Plant most bulbs in full sun. Follow directions on the package for planting depth. As a general rule, plant large bulbs - (tulips & daffodils) to a depth of 2-3 times their height. Most bulbs are best planted in groups rather than straight rows. Bulbs start producing roots soon after planting so be sure to water well. If bulbs are planted in an exposed open area you may want to mulch with dry leaves after freeze up to avoid thawing and re-freezing.
