9 Late-Summer Garden Ideas
With summer drawing to a close, now is the best time to plan your autumn vegetable and flower gardens.
Tip No. 3: Refrigerate flower bulbs for a more beautiful display after planting.
Did your tulips and hyacinths come up short last year? They needed more chill time. Purchase bulbs now, and place them in the vegetable bins of your refrigerator for at least six to eight weeks before planting. Plant autumn crocus (Colchicum sp.) bulbs and you will be rewarded with a multitude of pink blooms.
