Is anyone else beginning to see leaves of their spring bulbs?My poets narcissus,snow crocus,and iris reticulate are showing their leaves in the frigid air?I'm here near Monrovia.
Hi. Me too. I have a few various daffodils poking up. Some old fashioned doubles are showing buds and lots of leaf tips. I know they weren't expecting THIS kind of cold!
Actually, my crocuses have been *blooming* for a little over a week now. I imagine they're now all frozen over.
The narcissus leaves have been growing for quite some time now. I think they'll be okay. Thank goodness they weren't blooming yet.
I planted soooo many bulbs ,but forgot to fertilize.I had 2 trees cut down by the county(too close to road).So I have more gardens to plan out.I have MS,so I feel like I'm on borrowed time.I walk pretty okay,an occasional stumble,but I can deal.I love gardening,can't wait to see what comes up this spring.
these early signs of spring really energize me when the weather is cold!
Sos07: Glad to see you posting. I wouldn't worry about not fertilizing -- bulbs are pretty tough. You can fertilize when the bulbs first start showing signs of life in the spring....
