I also have two exhausting teenagers still at home :-)
and I'm brand new to this site. But I'm wondering if I can plant perennials in the fall this far north?
(abt. an hour north of Calgary, Canada)
I was maybe going to get brave and plant tulips :-) so that tells you what a newbie I am

Oh, certainly you can still plant tulips for a while yet; tulips you can really plant right up until the ground freezes. They grow more on the stored energy in the bulb than on the root development. Thanks for stopping in!
