Hello all! I’m new to the forum (this is my first post *blush*). Anyway…dearest hubby and I are sprucing up the house to sell (we’re moving to San Antonio,TX in June). He’s active duty military. I’ve only been here (Sumter, SC) since May of 08 when we got married. I was raised out in the country and my parents always made sure I had something to plant or care for. Every spring we planted a garden, planted bulbs, had blossoming fruit trees to care for. Until today I’d forgotten/didn’t realize how much I missed that.
It’s probably too early to do this, but here’s what I planted around the yard today.
Some cute little perrenials that I can’t remember the name off around the mail box. They were the most gorgeous shade of pink/fuschia
3 Azelea bushes (they were the 1 gal pot size…Lowe’s had them on sale for $2.25).
And these are the ones I’m thinking I planted too early… 15 Gladioli Fidelio 25 Anemone Royale 35 Brodiaea Fabiola
I’m going to get some pinestraw from work tomorrow to put down over and around everything tomorrow, and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that we don’t have another hard freeze.
Do you all think it’s far too early for the bulbs? Do you think they’ll grow?
