Throughout the years, the term “bulb” has come to describe any type of root form that is planted in the ground to produce a plant. However, only a few of these plants are truly “bulbs.” There are four different types: rhizomes, corms, tubers and bulbs. We’ll get the bottom of this misunderstanding and explain exactly what the true difference is between these four terms.
Now that we’re into November, it’s extremely important (if you haven’t already) to prepare your garden for the winter months. This doesn’t need to be a weekend-long affair, simply follow a few easy steps and your garden will be ready to hibernate (along with you) for the winter and come back next spring stronger than ever!

If you love the colorful blooms of Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths but can’t wait until spring, try forcing bulbs indoors for earlier flowers. The process is fairly simple and fun — A great activity to do with children.

Did you not get around to planting Tulips and Daffodils and now have a snow-covered garden? If you are in hardiness zones 4-7, try layering bulbs in large containers and placing them in the garage immediately. Come spring, bring outside and voila – A gorgeous array of early spring color to beautify your porch or patio!
When I tell people that I actually donâ€™t like to garden, they stare at me as if Iâ€™m crazy. Looking at my landscaping, you would think that I lived for it, but there are really only two parts of gardening that I look forward to: the actual growing of things and the planning.

Although squirrel and gopher watching may be a fun pastime for you and your family, their tendency to snack on freshly-planted bulbs is not so amusing. Donâ€™t let this discourage you from planting these gorgeous spring-bloomers â€“ With a few simple steps you can keep hungry critters away and enjoy the fruits of your labor come spring!
Butterfly Daffodils are a favorite in the spring garden for their stunning double centers, frills, and unique color combinations that resemble a butterfly. They are a knockout both in the garden and cut for spring bouquets. Try planting a group this fall for an elegant, whimsical show in mid spring.
