No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.

Hal Borland

There is no question, Winter is upon us. Just take a look outside into the wet, cold grayness. All the rain is good, though, and if you take a close look in your garden, you just might catch a glimpse of the promises of spring.

Warm Weather and Cold Snaps

So should you worry about our off and on cold and warm weather. The answer is “no”. Early sprouting bulbs are tough and can handle fickle Mother Nature. Though some may open their blossoms earlier than anticipated, spring bulbs are built to survive.

Planting Bulbs Late

So it’s the New Year and you get the hankering to plant Spring blooming bulbs. Ideally, they should be planted in the Fall, but if you found some lying around the house that you just never got around to, go ahead and plant them. Bulbs are living and may dry out if not planted. They’ll try their best to survive and it’s definitely worth the chance that they will.
