What? You still haven’t purchased your bulbs? No fear. You can still find basic tulips, daffodils and crocus at your big box stores. Many of the online retailers are clearing out the last of their fall bulbs, so now is a good time to get great clearance prices. So what are you waiting for?
I also transferred my herbs to pots so I could bring them indoors with hopes of enjoying them in my kitchen all winter. I have an older, drafty home that isn’t conducive to keeping plants from the garden alive when the temps dip. But I put them in my sunniest window (east) and will help them with a bit of artificial light. Keep your fingers crossed that I’ll be enjoying my Italian kitchen garden well into winter! Do you overwinter any herbs?
I have yet to divide my perennials…those of us in Zones 3 and 4 probably only have a few weeks left to get bulbs in and perennials divided before a hard ground freeze. Those of you in Zone 5 probably have until early December, depending on your exact location.
What garden chores do you have left before old man winter blows his frigid wind? Do you have new bulbs you’re excited about? Tell me by leaving a comment below!
