I am pressed for time before my knee replacement so I have some ideas for short cuts this spring.
Lowe’s and Home Depot sell “packages” of tubers, small plants, rhizomes and bulbs. This weekend, I am planting them in the cold soil. They will settle in and this summer, I will have beautiful plants such as;
Lilly of the Valley
The advantage of these packages is they are easy to plant, need a smaller hole than a full in bloom plant. They are cheaper; $4.99 vs. $9.99 for the full plant and they will have plenty of time to settle in, spread their roots before the heat of summer makes the root system more stressed.
So if the ground is not frozen, whip into Lowe’s or Home Depot and get out a shovel!!! You will be so happy that you did this summer.
